Pastel Fd is a painter and architect, working in Buenos Aires.
"Far away of conventional architecture, I understand work on the street as a urban acupuncture. Modern cities are full of “Non-places” because of irregular and not inclusive masterplanning. So paintings can be a kickstart for those places, working on the local identity and not being another tool of social gentrification.
I try to base my work on experiences. Considering the space where I get to create my work, it may be a city, a rural space, an open space or a closed space. At first trying to understand the conditions that the environment offers and not to impose an already established concept for the space.
I uses symbolism to explore and communicate seldom told stories about war and socio-political differences that to this day remain relevant in new geographical areas. Working with symbols like arrowheads and flora, the pieces begin a dialogue about the nature of man and his surroundings. The existential, real, pure and tragic."
