The Wall I would like to express my opinion about the proposal "Mision Uartes ". At first sight, this is an interesting proposal. The idea to bring entertainment for families who were affected by the earthquake, could work. However, the art in the country doesn`t have the privileged place it deserves. The people, in their great majority, prefer football before any painting. But taking into account that it is a mission for trying to encourage people, it seems to me that it might work. Yasser Olvera

Mr. Editor, at show the te a magazine th The idea to crea ful because oducts, it`s wonder student`s artistic pr y to exhibit us find the opportunit very few times we this project, the best of luck with at public. I wish you greetings. Francisco Ochoa

Hidden word

Over the cold cover notebook case I inhale lines of early enthusiasm. The surrounding oxygen is composed of tiny particles of creativity; it`s done! I take these particles and I press down in a questioner joint that constrains absurd illusions, complicates the conclusions, and strengthens the foundations of a germinating crystal idea in the insignificant search of artistic significance. Then, just a waste of mental chaos; with a bottle of ferment on my hand receipt between my teeth the tension of perfect balance between ideas and execution. Yasser Quevedo

I would like to write you verses on your pelvis, While my left hand Caress your labia majora, Then melt my letter In the sweat of our bodies, And which it loses in our infernal passion; Enter to the shower and lather up your body With my restless sperm Expelled from my member, Full filling you of pleasure, satisfying your desire Without involving love, just having sex...

A Little interview with the multidisciplinary artist Hernán Zúñiga Albán, poet, engraver, painter, teacher and researcher of the University of Arts talks about his projects, art and interventions in the public places: “REPLICA AND RESCUE”. HZA. Is a pictorial intervention on the rubble of the earthquake in Bahia, replicating the pre-Columbian engravings Jama Coaque, Bahia, and recovering the ancestral nature of their habitants, a contemporary iconographic variation in a single session of improvisation on fatal vestiges of the places. Eloy Alfaro Graphic Workshop. Community Action Links. UNIVERSIDAD DE LAS ARTES DE GUAYAQUIL. Bahia. Manabi province June 4th 2016. How your proposal “Réplica y Rescate" is born and what is their intencionality? The proposal is born with the desire to offer the manabitan people another form of solidarity from the field of art and culture, a different donation and an alternative to food, victuals and goods homeless. A call from the public space in ruins appealing to the ancestral identity of the site from the rubble of the seism. A pictorial action that recreates the iconography and worldview of their ancestors, as warlike communities, replicating its mythical ideograms and rescuing the spirit of ethnic survival and renewal.


Alfredo Castillo

How was your experience or how you felt with the place in ruins once began his artistic intervention? The experience was very moving and refreshing for both viewers beneficiaries of message and the author. A spontaneous action, playful with an identity issue that dominated in senses, conceptual, scientific, semantic and technical as a street muralist. A pictorial task in a single session, using basic durable materials, with the objective of achieving the symbolic structure of an alternative aesthetic clutter from the rubble. Which plans you have for the future as a teacher and researcher at the Universidad de las artes in Ecuador? The future plan is to do research plans from the desktop, nor repeating other texts, or copy and paste from the internet. It is to keep doing field research that will create texts with a level of critical essay, based on the proposal of a particular creative act that is the true test of the theory and existential practice. And as a teaching exercise the love of neighbor in my disciples, teaching by example and practice the art of life through curricular interfaces.


Le mat Angelo Mรกrmol 2016 Is my version of the tarot card le mat (the fool) and that it represents the adventurer, the guy who leaves everything to travel towards the unknown. For some he represents the person who, to act the fool, is not, as he knows perfectly where to go and what he want, just he is taken as a fool because he is out of the conventionalism.

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui Angelo Mรกrmol 2016 Is an illustration that carry the same name of the play written by the famous german playwright Bertolt brecht the resistible rise of Arturo Ui , whose original title in german is Der aufhaltsame Aufstieg des Arturo Ui that represents an explicit allegory satirical about the rise to the power of adolf hitler in the nazi germany, whom bert represents in parallel of the rise of Ui.


He had not father Alfredo Castillo 2015

Torture Garden Alfredo Castillo 2014

Both works speak about the absence of father figures the first is a sculptural object and the second is a self-portrait expressionist painting in mixed media works both seek to represent empty beings tortured psychologically and seen as incomplete beings and transmit strangeness. S/T Freddy Crespin 2016 Because mine is more full of conflicts on the rarity of an anthropomorphic or zoomorphic imaginary world, this mixture of animal and human, beside I find inspiration in the forms of textures, a scratched wall, dirt, etc... ...You get to a point in which you leave the tradition of painting or drawing in a pretty way and you find yourself and your new way of doing things, more fluid, creative, spontaneous and with more passion.
