Animalitoland is the visual universe of Graciela Gonçalves Da Silva, argentinean artist.
"I play with creatures, feed them feelings so they adopt shapes and colors. Then I paint them. You're invited to jump in, see if a hidden part of you whispers a tiny song.
Painting in the street gave me extraordinary connections with strangers, even if we don’t speak the same language. That’s how I learned Sensitivity is a universal language, and Imagination, a sparkle against social numbness. We all have these tools, but don’t train them everyday. I insist we do. So I leave reminders in the city, creating free space among advertising and grey walls.”
I'm now travelling, painting and learning from people. Incredibly grateful.
