Artwork Statement

Crises generate changes, it is precisely what is happening in the world after the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Recreating in our minds “happy” solutions to accentuated problems after having been eradicated said coronavirus, as well as carrying them out, is the task of all humanity. Protection of the icon symbolically invites us to become the “iconic generation” appreciated by future generations for the ability to have made good decisions and worked for the common good, that is why I imagine a world more aware of the value of life and "I visualize" humanity focused more on collective well-being than on individual pettiness, those are the "unexpected" changes that I hope will be generated by defeating this pandemic.
