Human history began some 2.5 million years ago and, for hundreds and thousands of years, it has developed extraordinarily slowly. Then an incredible and amazing new technology occurred around 50,000 years ago: writing. From that moment began a wild ride that went faster and faster in a race that promised human beings to conquer the whole planet, to touch down on the moon, to reach the depths of the oceans, to travel faster and to communicate with each other over enormous distances. Expressing itself technologically, socially and culturally over the past fifty years, this ride has found yet another push in the global network of digital communication. Our race has become even faster with impossible limits. Visit roBOt Festival

The illustrations start off as a pencil sketch that when finished are scanned into the computer. Here Cristian colours his work using a combination of different patterns and textures, of which he holds a bank of examples. The use of texture gives the illustration a natural almost surreale feel. see his work here.

Intense personal moments created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. A scent of flowers, pearls and ceramics. See the entire project here.
