Bringing Cubism and graffiti lettering together has always been my dream. The Faberllull residency in Olot presents a transformative opportunity for me to refine my dual identity as an artist and educator.Over the past ten years, I've been dedicated to nurturing young artists as an educator. During a spring residency in Iceland's West Fjords, the concept of interpreting nature through a Cubist lens emerged—a concept I now seek to deepen within the inspiring context of Olot. The past year has been an extraordinary test of balancing teaching and creating amidst a global pandemic. My commitment to my students led me through the crisis, but I made a promise to myself: if I succeeded in guiding my students through, I would rekindle my own creative journey. This decision led me to step away from teaching, creating a space for my long-held artistic aspirations. The Cubism-graffiti-lettering fusion that defines my style is ripe for exploration. Olot's rich artistic environment is the catalyst I need to propel this exploration further. By translating natural surroundings through a Cubist lens, I hope to infuse my work with new depths of meaning and expression. During my West Fjords residency, I found the seed of an idea, and now, I'm ready to nurture it in Olot. Stepping away from teaching, I've embraced a new chapter—devoting myself to my art and allowing this residency to drive its development. As I stand at this juncture of transition, I am poised to delve deeper into the work I've been craving to create. My time in Olot, surrounded by its creative energy, promises to be a pivotal chapter in my artistic journey—a chapter I'm excited to write with passion and purpose.
