The union of two cultures is retaken in the universe of contemporary visuality.

The beliefs of a religion. The codes of plastic arts combined with those of faith. A part of the history and culture of a nation. The worldview of a creator: Emilio O` Farrill.

Their visual compositions, executed with simplicity from the semiotic point of view, resort to the repetition of visual elements (in most of them) for the conformation of a pictorial discourse subordinated in its entirety to the foundations of the deities of the Yoruba pantheon.

The use of the line in its different morphologies, an element that stands out in its creations, takes center stage through the strong strokes made by the artist, usually executed in black and that more than a chromatic value constitutes a reference element those natives brought of Africa and whose legacy and presence are part of the interracial mix of Cuban society.

Another notable resource in their works is the use of color and the mixture of gray tones; that enable an understandable relationship between speech, audience and creator. At the same time it is a visual look that could be defined as ethnographic and transcultured in terms of content and form.

Graduated in the specialty of Visual Arts, O` Farrill is part of Artecru‘s creative family since this month.
