introduction

I needed an idea those times, better said a time passing in the last year of Art study of 2005. I sat at the table from my only rent room on a September afternoon. All the afternoons were the same. Under the continuous supervision of the hosts I started to sketch. At the beginning there were modulated lines by the only nib which I had then on some rests of paper. By the end of two months I and my sister moved. Beginning from then the final defining of all those personages, mystical little animals started. Even my arrival to Spain was marked by some of them that remember me friends, known people inclusively my family. The social environment impact might have changed my technique and vision. Then I had all the materials necessary for being able to create a framed collection. Although while we were progressing, I adapted to new possibilities but maintaining the original passepartout frame. Each of birds, fish birds or human birds has behind its own story, its own history to be told.


One day I would like to be able to make them all alive, creating a space or better said reproducing the sceneries and mental situations. The diversity of the creating techniques is determined by this continuity and evolution of medium. If at the beginning I used only the nib, until the end I dared to use water colors, colored pencils and colored wax pencils. The ideas always come and go away and in some way I had to reveal them in a dignified correct manner.


We all know that all the papers bound in any manner are called books. But a book can be of different types depending of the information that it offers: literal, didactic, photographic, illustrative information. This little book has an informative visual character, it means: it’s a chronological presentation of different technical pictures. What’s the ending? Maybe my own pride and I would say showing a different, more personal type of work. This may be characterized by the simplicity of forms, anatomical inventions, personalization of common birds, a mixture of fish and birds species, many decorative details, the idea of mystical of sacred, plane shapes, etc. I hope this first little book would make a good start and so I should be able to go on.
