Grain of Sand

Life is hard, no doubt about it. But are we not the main architects of this? Maybe if something went wrong, if sadness and frustration seem to inexorably creep into every corner of our days, probably a little blame is on our side too. This is what some artists seem to want to point out through their art.

Colombian illustrator Sako Asko is one of those messengers of truth. By mixing innocence and experience, he creates surreal images “to see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower,” somehow, someday. He has always had an affinity for the human inner world, and is interested in knowing what motivates decision making or procrastination. This is why he chose to create images: “through drawing I can make visible the inner universes that are hidden from human eye.”

Is kindness a mistake?
