Organic or not organic...?

The fact is that roughly all fruits or veggie on our tables are involved in the mechanized process of mass production. Most of the time that includes the so called organic products as well.

Did fruits and vegetables turn into mechanical objects already?

Sometimes life is just so tangled up in events, encounters, duties, escapes, sensations, looks, moments, feelings....that I can barely breathe.

I reckon that all this reflects on my personal approach to painting and making art.

Well, at least plenty of happenings means plenty of colours!

Is the human mind more complicated than a pattern on a fabric?


The human mind is more unpredictable for sure tho.

A display of deep emotions may come from the coldest and most sterile human products.

This early example of a developing species can be found swimming in the depth of the most polluted ponds and rivers on earth .

Soon this new breed will take over the local fauna .

Robotic fishes made of junk ...can you believe it?

Oh yes, it's the natural process of evolution shaping animals' features according to  the local environment.

Can an artist juggle his work among different creative fields such as architecture, photography, graphic design, animation, fashion?

If so, would he be able to keep a clear, coherent,  unique message  in all his art?

Such a variety of people and personalities living on this planet...

It would be amazing if we can all live together righteously and respectful of each other needs.

Instead, most of the time  it's just hate that populates humans' ralationships.

I'm trying to put a touch of colour in all this mess...

I want to be honest here, my first intention was to draw a car. One of the big fat american cars.

But my hand and mind suddenly had second thoughts and bam! This new creature was born.

  I could actually say that it was born from a car .

And someone says that cars don't have a soul...?

Well this one has mine.
