 I created this piece as an homage to Lúcio Costa y Oscar Niemeyer, who were responsible for making of Brasilia a perfect blend of rationalism and humanism, a modern urban utopy.

 The two figures in the mural symbolize both the shape of the master plan designed by Costa and the organic shapes in Niemeyer’s architecture. The mosaic refers to the roots, colours, rhythms and multiculturalism of Brazil.

 As in music, as in culture, as in the traditions that pass from parents to children. We are made out of layers. Meaning, values, words, rits. These layers build up a structure. Harmony, Melody and Rythm. We are individuals but also the people. What makes us unique also makes us brothers. Through the thread of time, we reflect ourselves in a past that is present in us.

 One of the main goals I pursue when I am creating a mosaic mural is to give the impression of lightness in my work. I use the technique in order to counteract the weight and stiffness of the materials. Painting with tiles. I like going back and forth between these two mediums, enjoying the best of each other: the texture, fragmentation, and repetition in mosaic; the brushstroke, expression and immediacy of painting.

 This piece was born with a different title. While making the mural, the assistants that worked on its creation were revealing their peculiar interpretations of the piece. Everyone seemed to have found a disparate and fantastic story hidden in the design. Hence, I changed the title to honour the books in which I used to spend hours as a child until having explored all the possible paths.
