Goya Torres doing llive-painting for the CK Market Lane Project in Manly the 6th and 7th of September 2014.
My piece "El Viaje" (The Journey) reflects the surf culture and local lifestyle with a visual mexican influence. After living in the Northern Beaches for 4 years, this piece has a very personal meaning of my journey in Australia.
About the project:
Each month in 2014 a new artist will paint a unique, original artwork on two large, removable panels on the wall of Painters' Gallery & The Manly Hubb at 44 Market Lane in Manly.The artworks have different subjects, themes and styles but each one aims to improve the urban spaces in Manly and help to start a dialogue between the artists and members the public. Each artwork will remain on the wall for a full month and will be available to purchase during that time.We have some of the BEST contemporary artists in and around Sydney taking part so we encourage everyone to come down on the last weekend of each month to witness a new masterpiece being created - The artist with the most positive response at the end of their month will receive the “People’s Choice” award during a special exhibition at Painters’ Gallery at the end of the Project.http://themanlyhub.com/market-lane-art-project/

"Fragility", rhino for Wild! Rhino project organized by Taronga Zoo and sponsor by Hotel Steyne. On exhibition at Manly Corso, Sydney from January to April 2014.
Auctioned for $10K, alongside 44 other rhinos auctioned separated. All funds went towards the conservation program. SOLD (Private collection in Sydney, Australia)
"Fragility" takes a critical view on how humanity has impacted on the survival of the rhino and other endangered species close to extinction. It portraits the fragile contrast of life and death: On the back of the rhino the visible bones underneath the torn skin symbolise death and extinction, on the front the art-line shows the over-delicate nature of their existence.
I painted two sculptures for the Hello Koala public art trail project in Port Maqcuarie, NSW Australia:
"Radiant Heart" sponsored by ABC Mid North Coast, symbolizes the essence and brightness of Port Macquarie Hastings region using different ray of colours that speak for each of its attributes: relaxing, happy, passionate and natural lifestyle. These rays irradiate like the sun from the koala’s eye and chest: its visionary, fueled and lively heart that is Port Macquarie.
"Starry Soul" sponsored by Discover Magazine, reflects the uniqueness of Port Macquarie Hastings region: the sea and the beach, the frangipanis, the starry night, all elements coming together in a spiritual and natural environment based in the four elements: fire, water, earth and wind. This koala complements with the second koala “Radiant Heart” as it represents night time.
In September 2014, the Port Macquarie Hastings region will be populated with a number of large-scale animal sculptures, manufactured in fibreglass and hand painted by celebrity artists, professional artists and community groups.
Hello Koala is a bold, ambitious and imaginative sculpture project, which celebrates one of Australia’s iconic animals – the Koala. Above all, it is designed to generate a sense of fun and surprise for everyone who comes across one of the creatively decorated koalas resting in parkland, lazing by the beach, waiting outside the shops, or playing with school kids.
The Hello Koala project is inspired by the highly successful Larkin With Toads public art project in Hull UK in 2010 and has been conceived by Arts and Health Australia.
