Create from the guts

Estaminé was invited by Mindshake PT to be among many other artists who were challenged to create their own “Creativity Virus”. All these viruses were part of a book and exhibition promoted to commemorate the World Creativity and Innovation Week as well as the 567th birthday of Leonardo da Vinci.

For us, creativity means freedom and joy. Having this is mind, we made a color-layered piece where we can see sort of microscopic view of a virus, which starts with a dark, dry and edgy nucleus and then becomes smoother, more colorful and vibrant as it grows bigger and reaches its freedom outside the frame.
