Name

Andrés Marcial Coba

About

My work tries to break the virtual boundaries between subject and object. Therefore, the use of tri-dimensional things or strong saturated colors and even pungent shapes and forms, don´t have any symbolic or semantic orientation. The purpose is to intrude the spectator´s space and erase the difference between him/her and the artistic object.
