David Taveras

"My paintings are the direct result of my desire to change reality and whatever causes dissatisfaction in my life. Therefore, at the end of the day, I have the opportunity to liberate the constant saturation of sounds, words and ideas that manipulate my mind. I use painting as a path to get rid of those values or pillars taught by family and society. Moreover, I have discovered that oil, acrylic and chalk, among other mediums, are all cathartic elements that help me purge emotions derived from real life issues or simply from a dream I have had.

"My work is characterized by free-form images, images without 'normal' proportions and character which generally interact in an urban environment and sometimes in a futuristic and surreal context."
