HEROES (2013)

The piece is about heroes I admired at different stages in life. Some of them I continue to admire today. In an increasingly digital world, I consciously chose to use analog techniques — but not the conventional kind. Going beyond the usual techniques, instead of a brush I use a tube of glue filled with acrylic lacquer.

The material and the texture of the color create a charm that could never be achieved by a computer illustration.

The images are like my memories of the heroes: raw and a little outworn.
