About this artwork

From the series “Chinese dragons”, oil and pencil on paper. 46 x 46 cm. In Eastern culture the dragon is a symbol of power, the roofs of the imperial residences are decorated with this mythological figure as a sign of protection and luck. In the traditional Catholic iconography the dragon is an incarnation of the devil, so that only the sword of a saint can suppress it. In my drawings this mythological figure becomes a middle ground between these two opposing visions, an elusive but fascinating animal, with malice in his eyes that could become evil. In these works I use uniform bright coloring and backgrounds turned on light or white, to simulate the color of lacquers or enamels in the decoration of porcelain.
