Queen butterfly

From the series “Please do not kill butterflies”, pins, oil and pencil on paper, 28 x 25 cm, 2016.

Please, all these dead animals ... Of course, not everyone of us can or want become vegetarian. Sure, in some cases, maybe, the medical experimentation needs them to get results. But we really have to kill them for our frivolous activities? ... Is it necessary to have so many pink pigs die in front of a camera? Do we really need to dissect sharks in formaldehyde, to starve stray dogs tied to a chain in the corner of a gallery, or to make innocent ants go crazy in twisted tubes of plexiglass? To make these drawings, no butterfly was killed.

I usually paint on stretched canvas, or fine art paper prepared for oil painting. Once ended, the painting is finished with a coat of varnish to protect against UV sunlight and dust. Also the sides of the canvases are painted, so they are ready to hang. My works are never sold rolled, but always packed flat. I put them between two sheets of acid-free paper with paper or cardboard protection for the corners, than closed in a plastic envelope and bubble packaging. The package is completed with stiffeners of polystyrene on both sides, and external layers of cardboard. All my artworks are unique original paintings, signed and provided of Certificate of Authenticity.

Great attention to detail. I love the pattern and colors, too.
