Finally as the first stage of the section who is, the artist wants to add a few words

The figures of big coloring receive life across the eyes of the artist, who been inspired by the art of the ancient settlers of the region, transports them to the present, in a work that it wants to honor these men, who felt the need to express themselves and realized beautiful creations to perpetuate both his ideology and the natural and supernatural environment that was wrapping them. This way, Inspiration II, it is located in the balance between the immensity of the ocean and that of the desert, which are forged as natural frames of the harmonic and silent testimony of the rock local art.
