This collection of photographs was shot on BW Washi Film during 2021, in the surroundings of Arcelor Mittal in Gijon and Aviles (Asturias), as part of our ongoing documentary project ‘Paraiso Natural’.
Like taken from Tolkien’s wildest dreams, Asturias is a magical place. A region with a long track history of working class movements and civil revolutions, surrounded by breathtaking scenery and unique nature. Since many years, the local governments and institutions proudly celebrate and push its tourism slogan, ‘Paraiso Natural’ (Natural Paradise). The reality is quite different. Although in essence, it is a real natural paradise, the pollution, environmental destruction, deforestation, intensive agriculture and social inequalities are rapidly destroying the region.
Pollution in Asturias kills twice as many people as in the rest of Spain.
And that’s why I’m launching my first NFT collection. All profits from this collection will be directly donated to the ‘Paraiso Natural’ project, in an effort to reduce environmental pollution in Asturias.
Photograph personally printed, the print is sent to each first buyer.
This work is from my “isolation series”. These paintings act as a diary for the first weeks in lockdown. After that I started to lose inspiration… The first painting, which is not featured here as an NFT, is called “The Calm”. The next was “The Unknown”, then “The Change”, then “The Strange Dreams”. These three I have vectorised into digital works which are now available as NFTs.
I will draw whatever you want on an A4 with black marker and post it to you :)
This collection is a tribute to my uncle. I am not an artist and these are my very first digital creations. They’re all inspired by the paintings I used to see at my grandma’s when I was a child. They were all signed by Ls.Glz, his non-artistic name and the name of this collection.
Nature in Space (x3), Your Next Love (x3), and Playground (x3) are the first 3 pieces of my collection. They were all created in Ibiza, in front of Es Vedrá - [story] during the month of March of 2022.
All profits will be donated to Paraiso Natural, a project that aims to help reduce the environmental pollution in Asturias, through a film that will be played across different entities and schools in order to drive awareness around these issues.
The unlock remains secret. You need to provide me with your address and some personal information as we will be creating small pieces of art that connect Asturias with you.
