Every night is magical in the village where I live, which produces the creative effect on me. And so Paradise Amarillo was born. This is a collage in my mind and through thousands of stitches and hundreds of meters of yarn, the work exists now.
hundreds of meters of yarn, the work now exists. A unified portrait of several afternoons. I chose yellow because it is a color of hope, a color that inspires a better world.
And the shapes and patterns that seem to form a village of colors in the work, is actually a social machine. This is a journey into a wonderful world,
this is finding other ways to see beauty.
Paraíso Amarillo is certainly one of Mesía’s few works where he proposes a visual and psychological peace. Where perhaps the artist himself has captured his moment of happiness and peace.
Mesía considers himself a sad artist. That is why this work is a work of happiness.
