Dancing in the Dark
I recently started a new series that I’ve named Art in the Dark. The most stylistic characteristics of this series are that all the works have a different artistic theme, supported by a hyperbolic geometrical concept, and are executed upon a black canvas. The first installment of this series is called Dancing in the Dark. … Continue reading Dancing in the Dark

Sometimes Art is just Life.
I would like to start this post with a quote by Ai Weiwei: Life is art. Art is life. I never separate it.This comes after long weeks of fretting over the fact that I’m in a rather turbulent period in my life where lots of changes happen, prohibiting me of having time to dedicate on … Continue reading Sometimes Art is just Life.
HOW NOT TO GET DEPRESSED AS AN ARTIST
Fighting with Depression (acrylic on canvas 72’ x 48’, 2016) is a canvas that I created when I was dissatisfied with the lack of recognition my work received. By the time I finished the canvas I felt already in a better mood, so I added the swallow´s nest in the storm lantern. Don’t ask me … Continue reading HOW NOT TO GET DEPRESSED AS AN ARTIST

The Complexity of Simplicity
“Being simple is the most complicated thing nowadays.” -Ramana Pemmaraju The principle of simplicity or parsimony—broadly, is the idea that simpler explanations of observations should be preferred to more complex ones—is conventionally attributed to William of Occam, after whom it is traditionally referred to as Occam's razor. This does not mean that there will be … Continue reading The Complexity of Simplicity
Abandoned art vs. unfinished art.
Let me start with the admission that most artistic projects are abandoned by their creators at a certain point. That doesn’t mean they’re unfinished projects: it just indicates that the artist moved on to other pastures of inspiration, style and interest. Everyone who’s artistically active, knows how difficult it is to resist the tsunami of … Continue reading Abandoned art vs. unfinished art.
About Analysis and Synthesis.
Since I became aware that lately became a little sloppy in giving regular updates, I decided to recycle on of my older posts where I was pondering about the tension field between artists and scientists. My general take upon this issue is that artists tend to have a synthetic approach towards the reality while scientists … Continue reading About Analysis and Synthesis.
Mystic Cyclical Synthetism.
My artistic approach found inspiration in Frank Zappa’s Project/Object concept for his work in various mediums. Each project (in whatever realm) is part of a larger object, that I call mystic cyclical synthetism.

Resurrection as a Literary Device.
Resurrection isn’t anymore the monopoly of theologians, priests and other religious leaders, but has become also a recurring subject of intense research and speculation among artists and scientists.
The main purpose of this novel is to entertain the reader with a historical fantasy: a spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy and absolute power, set against the canvas of North America, Europe and Asia during World War 1 and the ensuing great depression.
During the past weeks the word transition was prominently echoing through my mind. The primary cause for it was that I’ve been traveling extensively lately before settling down again in one of my familiar lay backs, Grand Canary. Soon after my arrival, the island was hit by a heavy sandstorm (locally referred to as a … Continue reading Transitions
Fun TBR list
For those still looking for a 2020 reading resolution,
The Novel as a Source of Knowledge.
Novels, while not in the business of stating truths about the world, tell a human story very often universal in scope and present them back to us as concrete forms of human engagement. A novel has the capacity to give shape, form, and structure, to the range of values, concerns, and experiences that define human reality.
The Novel as an Infinite Literary Jest.
“Fiction’s about what it is to be a fucking human being.” One who gets lost in life and takes all those tales literally, can forget that novelist very often lie in order to explain some truth.
