In immediately’s world, I favor to depart songs and work, reasonably than youngsters.
I’m an artist born in Colombia in South America. I like my nation geographically talking, however confess that I’m very disturbed by locations the place the principles should not revered. So I think about myself a wanderer of the world, with out borders or roots.
My mother and father began the mafia in Colombia earlier than Pablo Escobar. To flee that actuality, and being an solely son, I took refuge in music from the age of six. Earlier than I turned twelve, I discovered empirically to play three devices.
Since then I’ve devoted myself to creating my very own music. I’m enormously influenced by the Eighties, which in my view was a time when songs excelled with environment and character. That decade produced nice and everlasting music. Whereas dwelling in Mexico, my songs managed to rank within the Prime 10 on the pop charts, and I gained two prizes as a musical artist.
In 2019, I felt the necessity to discover different methods to increase the attain of my songs, and started working as a self-taught painter. My approach relies on using acrylics, spatula, my fingers, texture and a whole lot of colour. And a few of my work have their very own accompanying track written, produced and carried out fully by me.
In the mean time somebody acquires one among my work, in addition they obtain the track that accompanies it, in mp3 format. The track will be put in in headphones or one other gadget subsequent to the work. On this approach, the expertise of appreciating the portray extends from the visible to the auditory as effectively.
Neither writing a track nor portray is straightforward. Quite the opposite, I think about it extra of an train in “self-destruction” carried out in order that in the long run one thing artistic stays. In my case, it implies wallowing in emotions and sleepless nights, stopping the works to get away from them for hours or days, and in the long run realizing when to think about them accomplished.
