There is not parallel universes. There is only one, and unique universe… but multiply folded!
—David Delgado



I have a skeptical point of view on everything. And a sense about culture and humour that make me feel very close to Dada Art. I am little interested in meaning. My personal quest is to reach to another way of conscience through the visual experience. I want to move the inner chemistry of the viewer.

This series is quite special. If differs a bit from my current work. In most of my work, there are not straight lines because of my hand drawing and painting, my work is non-geometrical at all. This series, despite is still made all by hand, it is very geometric. There is a predominance of straight lines. And also a break of the bi-dimensionality and a break of the quadrature of the paper. These pieces are not simply a composition with the limits of the field of paper. They are, in a certain way, a sort of sculptural works.
