Víctor Valqui Vidal
Mathematician, Engineer, Sociologist, Poet and Visual Artist
For me Art is a way to express my ideas, reflections, socio-political concerns and visions about a better World. It is storytelling using different kind of materials, techniques, images, symbols and mixed media. I do not seek a specific style, but I combine in creative ways different symbols, styles, schools and techniques to tell my story.
For me the creative aspect in Art is more essential than aesthetics.
In my creative work I seek to break boundaries and constraints due to material, traditions or routines. I usually seek in my work ambiguity, humour, criticism, playfulness and weirdness. I make Art for the brain
not for the eyes. My pieces of art usually demand participation and involvement of the viewer, they are though provoking.
