Art Production by El Dandy.
For Dandy Vílmer Ruíz Estrada,
35, interacting with a computer supposed a partway not in terms of
breaking up but synchronic projection: the past represented by
the tradition of the cloth canvas and the brush, the future
expressed in bits and pixels, and the present was himself with
his creativity and his curiousity on his back.
separating them, he integrated all the physical and virtual media like
his elements of artistic expression and gave an additional step: the
fascination for the motion image, the sound and the volume
incorporated inside his creative proposal not only representing
what his senses perceive but, inclusive, using himself as a
canvas, model, and raw matter to sculpt.
Maybe the merit of this plastic artist born in Mallaritos Town, a Sullana City rural suburb, and based in Sullana City, actually, is that everything is self-learned. And applying that old principle of taught lesson, learned lesson, he added that about applied lesson, or experiencing with the technology he had where his hand could reach, said otherwise.
From his friends' computer, his own laptop, or even his smartphone, Dandy conjugates the verb to experience in everyway, until abstracting him and the result breakes an 'already' of satisfaction.
But since the
art is art while published, Dandy realized on the Internet a conduit
for the world to know his talent, and despite choosing to an advisor or
a firm to be released, he decided to concentrate the whole marketing
Of course, that implied to learn by himself how to edit a blog or to manage his Facebook account, but curiousity is another characteristic of his.
that the art also has to pay the bills, and that implies to balance
everything to settle into a principle: turning attractive to the
audiences not giving up your essence, what your conscience states, to
highlight where is approppriate and putting the finger on the
wound although the rest fears that disminishes sympathy.
Part of that philosophy passes through realizing himself as a perfectible subject and as an object of artistic expression.
Atracted by the
surrealism, the human figure is one of his recurrent topics on his
paintings, drawings, and sketches as well. But against the possibly
supposed, he does not use models. He brings the bodies out his
imagination and his memory. The rest is printing them.
Once upon a day,
he asked what happened if these bodies he represents skillful were his
own body, but he remained to reach to the canon or the Golden Ratio
celebrated by the classics like Leonardo or Michelangelo. Then, he
embraced the bodybuilding like a way to turn into another artwork
instead of apure sports discipline,and once he got results, he
experienced by adding the existent graphic design technology. A health
condition led him to discontinue the process.
One of his
projects is producing his first short film that mixes live motion to
CGI objects, and using a smartphone screen like brush and canvas.
Entrepreneuring And Globalizing
Additionally, Dandy is building a personal brand, El Dandy,
which he pretends to integrate all that portfolio to a proposal
of recycling art is added, that consists to use all inorganic solid
residues to create functional objects but with a pretty marked
touch of creativity.
Dandy is also conscious that the art itself is not profittable in a region like Piura,
so he had to add it another economic activity he knows very well
after he was recruited by the militia: the surveillance of people
However, he also
knows that in actual conditions, security services are a latent
risk, and he is actually an artist, so his next plans are focusing in
continuing to globalize his works and to try the
possibility to do pedagogy with them and through them.
As a graduated from Piura's Ignacio Merino Arts High School, Dandy has the approppriate tools to follow up creating and beginning to educate.
He seems not to
lose that ability of wondering and he definetly do not lose
the enthusiasm. Any unrelated person could think it is
about another dreamer fixated in not leaving the youth alone, but
what about if we had a kind of sui-generis entrepreneur in
front of us? Only time will say if he was right.
