"This symbolic series is based on the repetition of a pattern that doesn’t necessarily follow any specific rule, but it does show continuity and interesting transformations in volume, form, and color. ANIMA is the connection of the inner self with the subconscious, as an artist and graphic designer I’m always looking for different ways to translate intangible emotions that can reveal different realities in which we can all collectively connect with, but in a subconscious way, this is also my effort to visually confront my own fears and tribulations as a vulnerable human being."
