acrylic on canvas 72 X 36 inches (182.88 X 91.44 cm) Signed front and back
A personal interpretation of Las Hilanderas by Diego Velazquez. I tried to respect and maintain the space, volume and colour that Velazquez used. It has been made with a more current drawing not so adapted to the original forms. – 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.
