Wars: 2003-2008
 

The following paintings, presented under the collective title "Wars", started in 2003 with drawings and paintings depicting violent frustration, weapons and anger.

Soon afterwards, the theme of the boxer (both as a magician and a warrior) appeared as an empowered version of paintings such as "Passage / War" 2002, in which the protagonist experiencing a shift of consciousness is depicted more as a victim than as an explorer, which the boxer now is.

Primary colours now appear with renewed symbolism, and messages become visible in clear bold letters as an integral part of the composition. Paintings such as "Boxer II" are the evident prequel to the murals taking place in Barcelona between 2003/2005.
