Intuitive Surrealism

@ VOL 136 ON JUN 02, 2016

In Intuitive Surrealism from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 136, Barcelona-based artist, August Vilella shares his oil paintings, creatied by means of a surreal-intuitive method. Thanks to this method and without using any previous sketches or ideas, he tries to give shape to his past and future through the subconscious mind.
