Francisco Viri

Viri proposes an eccentric artistic style that embodies the principle of continuity. Behind the opulent forms and colors of his art, lies the symbolic representation of a solitary figure, drawn or painted in a circuitous unbroken line. What is profoundly tangible in his art is the poetic rendition of solitude and, to a certain extent, his proclivity to existential soloism. However, even in his elegiac portrayal of solitariness, Viri’s sensibility and humor emerge in some of his compositions.
