My Childhood

  • Barcelona 2015.
    Personal project mixing digital retouching and handcrafted sculptures.
     
    Yes.
    I am getting old.I do not like to age.
    You know, I am getting fatter, I am starting to feel pain in my back after many hours in front my computer,  I don't handle hangovers as good as before, etc.  
     
    Some days after my birthday I was watching old family photos from my childhood and I decided to make something from it.
    The perfect recovery for my melancholic stress.
     
  • Gameboy
    =
     
    I still remember when I got my first gameboy. It was on christmas and I felt the luckiest kid on the earth. 
    I spent half of my childhood trying to finish Mario Bros 2. Really good memories.
     
     
  • Spin Top
    =
    Hypnotic
     
    It was a really popular game among kids before technology domain.
    We used to make trick competitions in our class to see who was the most skillful one. I was pretty good.
    We used to custom our spin tops with colors and also make battles to destroy our spin top enemies. So much fun.

    Slime
    =
    Awesome
     
    The first time I had slime in my hands I was blown away. I talked to my mother to make our homemade slime.
    I remember bringing all the slime I made to school. My best friends and I were pranking everyone else in class.
     
     
  • Battlefield
    =
    Summer
     
    I am lucky enough to live in Barcelona. We have some beautiful beaches here.
    In summer I used to make sand castles with my family. And yes, they were empires.
    I brought all my toys and make them fight to each other. 
    We made some really interesting histories along the summer days.
