Ink – Handmade Paper

This series of works are made with very liquid Chinese black ink on handmade rag paper and belong to a body of work inspired on the birth of mythical Child Heroes from different world cultures. The mythical hero archetype crosses different latitudes and geographies all over the world and seems to repeat iconic motifs. The birth of child heroes is fascinating to me and I started to work on this conceptual series years ago. I use lots of water and bamboo brushes to lay down strokes of black ink trying to draw and create the figure of different child heroes.
