acrylic on canvas 47 X 32 inches (119.38 x 81.28 cm) Signed front and back
I was working on the series The Spinners and a gallery called The CAVE in Vancouver, Washington asked me to present a painting to say farewell to the year of the pig. The gallery had a collaborative exhibition with various artists invited to say goodbye to the year of the pig. – 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.
