"Reflection" by Daviel Galan
Daviel Galan lives in Cuba. His art is inspired by people who are visually impaired and by those who can see, but struggle to feel for others. We simply should not just see but feel all that is around us. This one statement moved us when our second artist shared the inspiration behind his art. He wants his art to inspire people to feel.
Daviel knows how to write and read braille. When we asked him what his favorite painting means, he had closed his eyes and read what it had said. It was about calmness that can only be achieved from within. That moment was so moving for us. Daviel’s painting consists of enchanting color palette which makes up the beautiful paintings. The different shades of green in the painting is truly amazing, so does the story behind it.
Can you see the eye below? It is closed and in the center. Encouraging us all to feel and not just see. Now on the left bottom is the description of the pictures in braille that can only come with the original so those with visual impairment can also experience this art. It describes what the painting means. We all have the ability to feel this calmness.
