Sebastian Boesmi, 1980
The mobile and baroque, fresh and fecund imaginary of Sebastián Boesmi animates a universe in constant expansion with the diversity and eloquence of the signs in movement, the living cryptograms, the lines and the pulsating graphics and the colors loaded with dark and deep senses and musical pulses.

About my work
In my recent work I like to imagine and describe the tensions between humanity and animality, between culture and nature; Sometimes integrated and hostile to each other.
I immersed the characters in natural environments, in which the vegetation seems to advance over the fragments of civilization, confronting distant cities burned with different characters and situations that refer to a journey that crosses the technological variety and urban icons, towards images of hybrid beings - humanized animals and humans with animal attributes.
Mainly I am interested in the dialogue. I consider art a constant dialogue and a human transaction and the exchange of ideas and concepts are always very enriching. I think that when you talk to someone, you often do not remember everything they said, you do not remember the words, but how that person made you feel. The same happens with an image, when it does not matter what material or how it is made, it makes you feel something, when there is a real murmur in it, when there is something unique, essential and beautiful, it is when you remember it; This also applies to people, gardens, dogs, everyday objects in nature, with everything that complements us and the variety of objects with which we choose to live.
