“MAMBO NEGRO” Is a personal project born in the darkest hours and it was a personal challenge to bring this to life. Sometimes we tend to show only our happiest and brightest moments/pieces of art, but sad/lonely/depressed feelings are also part of our reality and we have to let them express themselves too, and transform them into something more.
The main slogan of this project comes from the question “What is Mambo Negro?” and every piece, is an answer to it. It became first as a long writing piece, and slowly turning it into visual pieces.
It doesn’t matter to me if you don’t like it, it is made to make someone feel, feels. Understanding, Disgust, Sadness, Empathy, Curiosity, Fascination, Anger. The only thing that I would not like from someone who look at this project is to feel Indifference. So every answer to what you’ll see, is very welcome.
And if you by any chance feel identified with any of this pieces, just let me tell you, you are not alone, you are not the only one, and, trust me, it does get better, even when you feel like it can’t.
We all have our very own Mambo Negro. Embrace it, and stay strong.
