Alfarale Solo Art Exhibition

I have the feeling, that, this is the time where my artworks can create a dialogue with the viewer, provoke feelings and evolve.

It’s  an echo, a sound, a passion with language, which I had from a young age. Sometimes the words itself inspires me to create. Artists such as Cy Twombly, Francis Bacon, Alberto Giacometti etc.

Yes, most of the artworks! Part of the money will be donated to the  Pancyprian Association for the Welfare of the Blind
