The image is done to represent the Mexican lottery. The symbol of the flowerpot represents the head. The Mexicans have an expression, “You have your head well furnished,” which means that you are intelligent. There is another expression, “You have your head full of birds,” which means you are an idealist and a dreamer. I have represented the flower pot with plants that look like baby birds in a nest. – Pepe Hidalgo
Pepe Hidalgo was born in Spain and now resides in Vancouver. He predominantly paints with acrylic and sketches. Hidalgo studied fine arts in Utrecht, Netherlands.
Hidalgo has a distinct element present in his paintings. There is a string or cord that can be seen in the majority of his work. It acts as the umbilical cord that unites him to the universe and allows him to time travel back and forth as it supports his weight and pulls him back into reality. It also takes on the role of identity maker and can almost be considered to replace his signature.
