I started to paint blue was a colour I could not conceptualise to use
it. As I progressed experimenting with colour, I found it was a colour I
felt identified with. Among many things I reminded me of the vastness
of 'space' that separate us, from the diaspora to the dept of the sea.
It also reminds me of a Nicaraguan writer, Ruben Dario, who published a book of poems and short stories called "Azul".
