About the Artwork:
I Barely remember when my grandmother died and gave me her favorite cameo. She always had it with her, she used to say it helped her to stay humble and stoic, It was golden and heavy. Never knew what was inside. She told me to not be curious, “never wish anything in front of it, or the cosmic smoke will swallow you, like the mist embrace the trees, to not be seen ever again.”
About the Artist:
Isaac Malakkai was born in Almería, south of Spain, where the rain never comes, currently based in Denmark, when the rain never stops.
Isaac has drawn for as long as he can remember, but it was his encounter with graffiti in 1999 that triggered his decision to quit engineering studies and focus on street art and painting.
The female figure and surrealism are the main characters in his artwork, together with a mix of bright and desaturated colours, reflection of his love for spraycans and the “moon” desert and raw mountains back in his hometown. Always thoughtful and caring with details, Malakkai always has a story behind every picture in a galaxy in constant evolution.
