The paintings, on the other hand, represent memories of travels in his later years. Since 2016, when he had moved to Barcelona, Solomostry leaves past up poster along his journey. Whether it are cities around Spain, the Dominican Republic, Germany or Zurich, the artist brings posters to paste on the wall with him. The posters are handy in many ways: as they are light and foldable, it’s almost effortless to take them along and they can be pasted swiftly. For the artworks at the gallery Solomostry used the same signature scruffy lines as on the posters, but now the artworks are meant to be exposed and stay, rather than being washed away and overpainted. With the applied technique Solomostry demonstrated once more his creativity: he used a gardening sprayer for applying the colors.
Never give up being creative and making the best out of the situation. Never give up, new adventures are ahead!
