"This is the first main print that I have done. It was also a great experience because I was part of the entire process. I liked that. I think that people that are working in a given medium need to know the whole process.
This print is part of the Lethal series (poisonous plants). It is a symbolic way to talk about the same concept that I will use to work on walls, working with plants to show the social and historical problems that modern society has, how this is changing the way people are living. Not because it’s a natural change for common people, it’s not a modernity pushing, it’s modern society pushing people to change. Painting these plants is like painting a reflection of this problem. I feel plants are the strongest way to talk about it." - Pastel
About the artist:
Far away of conventional architecture, Pastel understands work on the street as a urban acupuncture. Modern cities are full of “Non-places” because of irregular and not inclusive masterplanning. So paintings can be a kickstart for those places, working on the local identity and not being another tool of social gentrification. He tries to base his work on experiences. Considering the space where I get to create my work, it may be a city, a rural space, an open space or a closed space. First of all by trying to understand the conditions that the environment offers and not to impose an already established concept for the space. Working with symbolism like arrowheads and flora, the pieces begin a dialogue about the nature of man and his surroundings. The existential, real, pure and tragic, almost forgotten in modern society.
