My landscapes show my usual vibrant palette of colors and are inspired by the collection of visual and textural curiosities gathered during my travels. Every landscape I create is a way to pay homage to special places I have been to, transforming them into a journey of storytelling and memoir. Here my homage goes to Barcelona, one of my favorite cities in the world! I tried to convey its amazing and rich cultural atmosphere by using colors and textures that were somehow related to great masters who lived and worked there. The heavy textures of this work are inspired by the architecture of Gaudi; the geometric shapes, by Picasso's cubism; and the shades of blue color by Miro’s dreamy colorful palette. The structure of the image is based on photographs of Barcelona harbor, taken during my last visit to this city.
