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 are welcomed to jump inside an image and see if a hidden part of yourself whispers a tiny song.
We live stalked by a darkness that slowly makes us numb. I believe that imagination and sensitivity are forgotten tools that need more training. Connecting with strangers from all origins and cultures, made me think about this universal language we all know instinctively, but not necessarily speak everyday. What do we say, when we speak from within?
I'm now travelling, painting and learning from random people all around. Incredibly grateful for all the love I receive.
