Congratulation on the sale of your art!

Bravissimo! Raul, your digital art is breathtaking. You capture the passion, sensuality, intensity of the tango, your characters, and I love your color palette. As a professional concert artist (pianist, vocalist and dancer), I find it refreshing to see romantic, thoughtful paintings depicting gay romance and also telling the history of the dance. Since I'm half Galician Spanish, I have looked for years for such a beautiful painting that would celebrate my heritage, and as a gay male celebrate that as well. I'm so moved by all of your art work. Once my remodeling is done I will be ordering your paintings. This one will look great in my bedroom (which has these blue/silvery and purple tones.) Looking forward to following your brilliant art career (I come from a family of musicians and artists) myself. Thanks.

Description

One of the reasons for men dancing tango with men is that tango was considered immoral by the upper class and the authorities. A woman was considered in poor standing to be dancing the tango in Argentina. But the dance itself was thought to be in seductive and overtly sensous to be performed publically. So much so that
there was a formal initiative to close all cafes and ban tango music from being played on the streets. For example, in 1916 a law was passed in Buenos Aires that banned dancing between men in dance establishments. An attempt was made to slowly eradicate it from Argentina, and we find an account in 1919 by Joaquin Belda, who in his visit to Buenos Aires for 6 months wrote that most of the cafes were either closed or empty.
This of course resulted in even further reduced access to couples dancing tango, so to dance tango, men had to to dance with each other.
