In his constant search for the ephemeral, Borobio brings us closer to scenes of his inner world where color and spontaneity take full autonomy. Through open strokes and wide surfaces of shades shows an abstraction of the artist who constantly experiences with different textures, paint or varnishes.

Through it’s vivid and energetic colour palette, Borobio seeks to arouse new moods and invite reflection. In its constant allusion to nature, once again we can appreciate abstract forms and innuendoes that remind us of it.

This work, considered by the same artist as “a short film within production” stands out among its usual repertoire given its modest format, its freshness and naÏve connotation of it, which in its simplicity reminds us of the language of the serigraphic print.
