The target of the art is always, but always, to provoke. To do that one speaks that what is contemplated. In this case his idea is to trouble.

It paid my attention an outdoor exposure that is realized in Mexico (from February 27 until March 20). The same one is called uncomfortable Inhabitants, and is an only one sample of all that that bothers the city dwellers.

As tells the healer of the same one, Edgardo Ganado Kim, this exhibition “he reflects around our daily discomfort opposite to the state of humor of the others and to the proper one”. To keep on reading»

If there does not cost glance a little the work of Roy Lichtenstein and his large-scale reproductions of the comics. His last works, which well raise representations of the personages of the novels roses so famous in this epoch, show a clear influence of the skills of Matisse and Picasso.
