About this listing

Where there was no color before, there is a different light now, which has entered directly from the brush of an artist to the neighborhood and in the middle of their days, turn towards the giant children and smile.

Artist Máisel López Valdés, tries to break the communicative barriers with the general public: by taking the walls of wineries, houses, buildings, and other abandoned places in the neighborhood.  where he lives and converting them into giant children’s portraits.

The west of the Havana city, Buenavista belongs to the Playa municipality, and is one of the least favored places in terms of the quality of its urban infrastructure.

Motivated by the large spaces without color and the evocation about the future, Máisel took as reference children’s faces.

Universal symbol of hope, the child is always a good reason. And it is a good reflection environment, when it is known that to talk about art today, it is necessary to know how to see beyond the technique, the means or procedures.

It is necessary to find in the creations, something invisible to the eyes, establish a direct and motivating dialogue. Perhaps that is why, and there is the ratification of his work, “Colossi”, the series without gallery, has had a unique and turbulent reception.

Myths and social fables appear on the way to legends beyond the control of Máisel. Something is certain, the murals are alive in the imaginary. His primary intention, is to take a picture and capture a gesture and then take it to the walls. The photo would be just an instrument; his means of expression, drawing and painting.

“Colossi” is situated in the symbolic imaginary, moving from the image as a medium so present and common in our culture, to a personal space of representation of the world expressing a concrete reality.

There are no hidden stories or private spaces, but a pleasant conversation that arose from contemplation as a perception of the other and his own by addition that mediates between the subject and his environment.

The simplest truth is that the majority thanks Colossi that he goes, little by little, finding not in an event, but in an instant, not in a story but in a space, his relationship with life.

Its expression, exclusively visual, renounces other forms and its revealing potential is in the inner change it produces.
