colores en la estrellas pueden brillar con luz negra. Los globos en la espalda del
astronauta también representan planetas. El tamaño de este cuadro es de 120cm
de ancho y 90cm de largo.

Description

This painting is really special for me; I made it two years ago. To finish this painting
it took me one month and a half. It is made on wood, over this there are different
canvases of craft and finally I set kitchen paper. The different canvas of craft gives
a sensation on relief. I painted with acrylics. Some of the colors on the stars can
bright with black light. The balloons in his back are also some planets. The size of

Analysis

When we were children and somebody asked for “what are your dreams in your
future?” we answered thing like: I want to be a teacher, I want to be a scientist, I
want to be a lawyer, and well, my dream was being and astronaut. The balloons in
the back of the astronaut represent the faith and the thing that inspired to make our
dreams to become true. I really like and enjoy to work on dreams, I can say that
the concept of my work are the dreams. Although I didn’t tried to study something
about astronomy, in my childhood I learned something about it, but there is always
a dream inside of me, inside of us and believe it or not, we have some balloons on
our backs taking us closer and closer to our dreams.

Background check

The base of this painting is on the surrealism, because it is focused on the


subconscious and the dream world. One of my biggest referent is Salvador Dali,
he was best known by the striking and bizarre images in his work. Even if my
painting is totally different on his work, I really like his concept and work on
Surrealism. His painting represents the magnificent of his imagination. Besides
being a painting, he expanded his artistic exploration to the filmmaking
collaborating with Luis Buñuel.

In addition on this, the artwork of Rene Magritte is amazing in the surrealism,


because he participated in other periods like Cubism, Dadaism among other
movements. His work was focused in the language and his personal issues making
on it smart analogies, but understandable into the painting reality.
