In my art I have two interests: One is portrait painting and the other is representations of the Indalo, or Rainbow Man. This figure is a symbol of luck and good fortune and is very much part of the culture where I live near MojÃ¡car, in the eastern part of AndalucÃa, southern Spain. The Indalo symbol can be seen on houses, businesses, incorporated into fences, as public statues and even on drain covers in the Almeria area, and it has become the inspiration for many of my paintings. My collection began with more abstract images of the Indalo figure, usually as a man, and then I began to experiment with a fusion of the dancing figure, now a woman, with the rainbow idea. All these pictures are painted in acrylics on canvas. I use colours that reflect the light and vibrance of the area where I live and I love to experiment with texture and mark-making.
