In art, masks take an important role. I am definitely attracted to their stories
Painting The Avila is a connection between Venezuelan artists. The Avila is the mountain that borders Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, and La Guairá, where I grew up.
Painting it not only reminds me of my time in my native country, but also brings me back to the two different perspectives I was able to see it everyday while living both in El Litoral Central and Caracas.
Its vivid green color and immensity filling the city landscape was a large source of my inspiration.
I have a couple of pieces of El Avila, but one specifically if my favorite and that is why I have created replicas in different sizes that will allow anyone to take that piece of Venezuela with them.
I know that Venezuelans who live all around the world value The Avila as a symbol of our native country and that is why I created these replicas as a little reminder of home.
They will be available in my Art Shop on www.neisart.com.
