Special Opening Ceremony:
5th June, 5pm – 9pm
Anton Olea (Painter)
As a surrealist visual artist, Anton explores the traditional and contemporary mechanisms of society and where the four elements of Mother Nature are embedded into the human life. Anton’s paintings contain mixed media, oil and acrylic substances, expressing a human dependence on technology, but also a defensive stance towards the unconscious expressions and personal sensitivity filled with dreams and hopefulness.
Federico F. Mendoza (Experimental Mixed Media)
Federico chose the difficult path of expressionism; ambivalent and experimental works where the four elements are represented crossing opposites and transitions. He explores the different parodies and ironies with some critical surroundings and social realities. His imaginative works are situated in the constant balance between order and chaos. affmendoza/
