Tradigital Art created by visual artist P Gurgel-Segrillo - original traditional pencil on paper drawings worked digitally into archival quality prints
The tradigital series #1 was created as a response to 'I Have the Right' open call for an exhibit at the PICTURE Art Foundation, Redondo Beach, California.
Artworks were selected from over 800 entries by the PICTURE Art Foundation Board of Directors that illustrate a cultural interpretation of the exhibit theme, Human Rights, including art that addresses: The Right to be Free; from oppression, to choose my leaders, to worship openly, to live in peace and to get an education - The Right to Express Myself; speak freely, be myself and to create - The Right to Dream; anything is possible, war can end, hunger can be eliminated -The Right to Love; myself and the person I choose.
Printed on Hahnemuhle smooth white 100% Rag based paper with archival quality pigment inks, in signed limited editions of 25.
'My drawings may seem at first to be dealing with the surreal, or the supernatural, but instead of exploring the world of dreams or the unconscious, they, in fact, refer to our day-to-day, multi-layered humanity - from the grit of the mundane to the highest spiritual aspirations.The fantastical and the mythical, the bizarre and the idiosyncratic are present in every day life - I strive to uncover them in an attempt to provoke, disturb, inspire and, ultimately, celebrate our shared humanity'
