This August I had the opportunity to present some of my work at the New York Public Library. The Secret Life of the Clouds is a project I started a while ago, based in the idea that we don't really know what happens above the clouds. I imagine birds building cities in the sky having babies and living far from the noisy humans.
Hoy have until August 31st to visit the exhibition, located at the Bronx Library Center, 310 East Kingsbridge Rd, The Bronx, NY.
Many visitors have passed by leaving great reviews at the heritage center.
This is the third time I exhibit at the Library and it's always a great experience. The staff is always amazing. I am so glad they put all the effort in the world to keep that place alive.
Happy New Chinese Year everyone.
This year is the year of the snake, Snake Years are sixth in the cycle, following the Dragon Years, and recur every twelfth years. And today starts a new one.
Este jueves, 13 de diciembre se inaugurará la exposición "Vintage Ink Dreams" en Elche.
Es una recopilación de acuarelas basadas en tatuajes de marineros de principios de siblo vista a través del cristal de mis interpretaciones.
Además de otras dos series de acuarelas, donde una nos transportará al mundo que no vemos encima de las nubes, la explicación a muchas incógnitas que mirando al cielo me planteo respecto a la vida de los pájaros.
La otra son también pájaros, pero estos miran sus propios pensamientos en un reflejo de lo que a veces hacemos en esas horas de la mañana cuando te despiertas y tu cabeza no te deja volver a dormir porque tiene demasiadas cosas dando vueltas dentro de ella.
Os espero este jueves a las 8 en ARTERIA, en la calle forn fondo 1, Elche, Alicante.

"Aún otra amarga gota en el mar sin orillas"
"Still another bitter drop in the sea without sores"
from a poem of Rosalía de Castro, a Spanish poet.
This is the watercolor I'm sending to Drawgasmic, a one day exhibition that will become a book afterwards.
Proxart has my work featured in their website. You can find it here!
And soon it will be published in their magazine.
“I will possess your heart”, a song by Death Cab For Cutie, is the inspiration for the 13th issue of Carpaccio Magazine.
I participated with this hand-lettering drawing and with the series of dripping hearts I made some months ago together with one of my husband's poem
In a very circular moment,
her figure repeated was.
the wind blew without mercy,
not knowing destiny, for me, a surprise had.
Not too long it took
For this Hunter to be bitten
His hands were swollen up
His heart poisoned and defeated.
Her fangs, filled with poison,
words of sweetness and seduction are,
poisoning a man’s soul,
Her first Hunter today, she’s ready for lunch…
In seconds her poison ran through my veins
leaving me useless and numb,
whipped by her knowledge
on how to destroy a man's soul...
I really felt foolish and dumb.
It felt like an eternity
for her poison to slowly caused an effect
all of a sudden life was an excuse
something I felt to regret.
It looked like the end and it really was
without mercy she swallowed my heart
slowly delighted by the flavor of my tears
as I was dragged along with my hopes and fears...
But destiny, as wonderful and mysterious as it is,
and beginners luck showing the way,
Distracted was this predator of day and night
she had a weakness...
that weak spot she never thought I would find…
As I escaped from this ferocious beast
and the path clearer and safer was
Turning on that corner of freedom
Temptation with me crashed
another beautiful beast for this beginner to catch...

“This piece is one of a series with fishes I made last year when I first arrived to NY. As Haiti is an island I thought sending one of this images working with water and sea life would be attractive to possible buyers. As an artist I have not many resources, and giving out my work is the best way I can find to help right now.”
Art Loves Haiti is a way for artists and people who love art to contribute to the aid efforts in Haiti. It is a collective auction of artwork, that contributes directly to the children and families affected by the earthquake Haiti on 12 January 2010.
Proceeds from this auction will go to Save the Children Haiti Emergency Appeal. The earthquake in Haiti on 12 January 2010 affected 1.8 million people living in Haiti. The death toll has been estimated to be over 100,000. Save The Children has over 200 staff on the ground in Haiti, with the priority of saving childrens lives by distributing emergency aid, including food and medical supplies and field hospitals to provide children and families with life-saving assistance. They are setting up spaces where children are protected from abuse, exploitation, and family separation and are able to access safe and quality education.
Art Loves Haiti was conceived on January 14, 2010, when artist Sarah Larnach and musician Pip Brown auctioned a rare piece of Ladyhawke artwork to contribute to the aid effort in Haiti. The auction received an overwhelming response from compassionate individuals wanting to help. Art Loves Haiti aims to relieve the suffering, and help rebuild the lives of children and their families affected by the tragedy. Visit the facebook page for information.
