About the Artwork:
“Stellium is a concept that shapes a cluster of power and variety of energies interacting together and creating a single and playful ecosystem. This group of elements, beings, shapes and colors that dance, float and become company revolve around the mysterious, delicate and melancholy figure of a humanoid, representing the center of that universe, its beginning and its end. As if it were a unique event, this stellium is the point where completely dissonant lives and dimensions converge in perfect harmony.” – Christian Orrillo
