Three Wishes at the Museum of Moder Art -Mexico

Last wednesday, September 29th, was the annual auction at the Museo de Arte Moderno of Mexico Vivo Foundation. Here I present, for the first time, the portraits I did early this year of young guys after I asked them to make a wish. Each one is holding a simple object that individuals use to make a wish. From left to right, Pablo has a coin, Johann a "wish bone" and José 12 grapes.

Now this painting belongs to my dear friend Sergio Magaña.

TWP @ San Miguel de Allende

I visited this beautiful colonial town, located 3 hours away from Mexico City, for the wedding of one of my best friends, Mexican fashion designer Alexia Ulibarri, who also studied at Central St. Martins, as well as I did. And she married Sebastian Tonda with whom I studied secondary school @ Colegio Madrid in Mexico City. Destiny played a quite important character this time, right? After walking around the town I fount this public phone with an amazing red wall and I put my post-it and made a wish. This was for my friends.

On the Sky of Brazil

In a flight from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro. I left a post-it with the word of wish in the local language, DESIJO. In the small window of the back door of the plane. Making a wish and flying in a plane has several similarities, both represents a journey, a way and a path. In both cases you are closer to the light, to the sun and your mind feels clearer and the horizon is infinite.

On the streets of Mexico City

I wish year 2010

I wish-desiree to forgive and forget, to be able to grow as a person and as an artist. I wish that all the doors of the universes are open for me. So I can be a better person towards myself and the world I live in. I wish for this new decade my spirit will be stronger and wiser. And I wish you wish too.

I wish year 2000

I remember one of my wishes was to study and live in Europe. To have a couple in a city where my preferences were respected. I also wish to travel around the world and that the new year, decade and millenium was full of possibilities.
