Featuring Pablo Perea
“Billowing Life” is the first “Still Life” collection of Pablo Perea. The pieces are painted in the technique of oil pastels on paper and also acrylic on canvas.
The objects that were part of our lives were once the notion of “Beauty and Harmony”, they were witnesses to our happiness and it’s the departure. We do not realize that those images that we perceived as “Still Life” were accompanying us and living!
