Literature

From William S. Burroughs and Charles Bukowski, Japanese Ghost Stories and Victorian Horror, from the Bible to Tarot Cards, and the diaries of Frida Kahlo… we have found inspiration in that intangible world of the words. They say that there is nothing more similar to the action of painting than the poetry, and with our tableaux vivants we have proved that irrefutable truth. Going from the printed word to a brush can be visually appealing and conceptually compelling!
