Today, in our reality, we live in such a fast-paced world, full of stereotypes and standards to “reach”, that many people roam the streets like automatons of the social entity, where our ability to imagine, dream and detach ourselves a little from our environment They have taken a back seat, they have put aside finding themselves, seeking their essence, following their dreams, keeping the flame of imagination alive, because it is right there where the greatest dreams are born and illusions flourish.
The current compositions of Rigo-Art represent that door to the imagination, where the stress of everyday life stops for an endless moment to contemplate, imagine, feel that colors come to life, that figures little by little take over your dreams to give way to the contemplation of a world where hope and dreams vibrate more than ever, fantasy and reality live in harmony, where calm reigns and longing lives.
