About The Artwork

The Wheels of Dream" is a composition made up of two canvases, with a vibrant texture that envelops the viewer. At the heart of these works, two young explorers drive improvised cars made of tyres, capturing the effervescence of childhood and the joy of play. The tyres, more than mere objects of entertainment, become vivid symbols of the embodiment of a dream.

The rich colour palette skilfully explored in these canvases reveals a fusion of blue, red, yellow and touches of orange. The texture initially created on the canvas provides a basis for overlapping and blending the colours, resulting in areas where two or even three shades coexist harmoniously.

The children, painted with care and attention to detail, convey the innocence and genuine joy of their play. These little drivers, more than just protagonists, embody the pursuit of dreams, expressing their hopes as they drive their tyres like vehicles of promising tomorrows. Their joyful voices, transformed into imaginary horns, echo like real lorries, crossing avenues and exploring a world of possibilities.

In the artist's mind, when painting these scenes, lies a careful exploration of the joy present in the small achievements of childhood. The tyres, which transcend their function as toys, symbolise the collective desire of these children, both urban and rural, to escape everyday difficulties and pursue their dreams.

These works are thus a provocative reflection on the importance of providing a healthy environment for children to grow up in, cultivating hope and perseverance, especially in the midst of adversity. A powerful reminder that even in the darkest streets or places, creativity has the power to colour and transform the world around us.
