Picasso said “everyone tries to explain the art and I wonder why not try to explain the birdsong” . Arturo’s work comes from sub-consciousness and expresses what is impossible to be put into words. The paintings are grounded in human figure as a metaphor and in fascination how colour changes the sense of form. The inner tension of the heart is carved in two dimensionality of painting: the essence of the friction of the soul with the world and oneself. Lately Arturo is partially abandoning figuration and started to experiment with sculptures in wood reliefs and digital media. His maverick personality has been reflected in the continuous experimentation, in the search of his own language, using all kinds of materials and techniques. This process has led to the abandonment of two dimensional canvases, and he started to create reliefs, to mix painting and collage, as well as, the digital image with paint , he paints hes relieves as well. Lately he combines light, backlight with fluorescent colors; so that the work changes depending on weather is lit by natural light or with black and white, digital works in methacrylate, backlit with LED, video….
His last solo exhibition (Berlin 2014) shows all these fields of work as well as simultaneous lines of research.
He continues his creative work in these areas, with increasing interest in social networks and how they brought democratization of artistic act and what does that mean in general for development of self-awareness and perception of others .
Central themes in his work are the human figure as a metaphor of the universe, how color and light change the sense of form; both formally and conceptually and how contrast material can create a harmonious message of various aspects of existence
