Little Global Village

Diego Perez's avatar Diego Perez

Humor is fundamental for my work. The nonsense, criticism and laughter are part of my creative process. I consider important to modified the legitimation of art and its regular approach of admiration and respect of the art piece by questioning the environment and by using the irony and sarcasm. In "Little Global Village", I show the multiple representations that we have in the web, a critic among nowadays wisdom and human communication. The piece is a mirror of what we pretend to be before others when using social media. It should be noted, that I grew up among an acid humor environment, that nowadays persists in my conception of the world; through painting I haves discover a way to used this character as a tool to questioned what surrounds me in a relaxing and different approach of the oil painting tradition.
