Across history and civilizations, people have been using masks for sacred rituals, theatrical performances, and identity concealment. Inspired by the classical Spanish theater of Almagro (the town he spent most of his childhood in), he sees life as a play in which everyone has a role. To the artist, the masks in his paintings are symbols of our need to hide and repress our desires, flaws, and fears. With them, we conceal our true nature and simulate more-socially-acceptable personas to gain social acceptance and navigate through life. From time to time, we put our masks down and reveal our true unvarnished selves to the people we trust. Through these artworks, we can delve into the artist’s metaphorical scrutiny of human beings’ inner selves.
