Charlie

Charlie is the best exponent of Valladares’s futuristic vision for art creation. In this particular piece, the observer witnesses a refresh metaphor of modern man: a human being blend with a machine to express the strong relationship between man and technology. At the same time, Charlie is not an ordinary man attached with the actual circumstances: his curious spectacles and his inquiring hands denounces that we are in front of an artisan, a silversmith who contemplate a round existence. So, Charlie forges a new world with the passion and the exquisiteness of a Hephaestus able to enhance the beauty of simple things; a sense that clearly shows in the surprise of his face as result of his meeting with the unknown. The combination of materials and the addition of industrials elements contribute to the complexion of a character that prove the expressive and symbolic value of his conception.
