The works of Leonardo in this new series of paintings, called "Wow?" places attention on the concept of conformity, but not in its material declination. There are concerns in these works, the way the thoughts and consequently the opinion of individuals, are becoming victims of conformity in some alarming ways. The paintings of "WOW?" pose as their primary objective the amazement, a series of elements are made to interact in order to obtain this feeling, recalling the Baroque wonder. . The exposure is another element not overlooked, each work presents a frame that comes from the most renowned museums, that turns into a magnetic element which will have the task of attracting the spectator, regardless of the content of the work. The frame becomes a metaphor for what could be a large number of followers or views; the individual will be drawn regardless.
