Fills de la utopia (son’s of uthopia) is an artistic project that talks about how spanish society has liven (or pushed to live) avoiding everything that is true. The economic bonanza previous to the great crisis made that many of us could study and live comfortably, a fact that created not only a political abandonment but also an abandonment of the necessary values for the construction of a more fair and coherent society.
This is why the main characters of my pictures are dreamy, absent and frequently represented in a satirical way. This last point has as a reference in Francisco de Goya’s grotesque drawings. With them, the artist tries to correct the bad habits and human errors, either ridiculizaing them o censuring them, mainly in a comic way and showing the constant contradictions in which our society lives.
In the end, this pictures go further than simple figuration,they want to describe a society that has fallen asleep over the years and to do an introspection and auto analysis about the paths that led to this situation.
