Los Arturos were born as a response to the non-sense of life, the boredom of it, the lack of desire for anything and the sleepiness that overwhelmed me every day. These paintings came from drawings I was making of my best friend. They were created through video calls, since a significant distance separates us physically: I am in the United States and he is in Colombia. After about a year of many video-calls, screenshots and drawing, the paintings came to life.
