BIO

Fabio Mesa​

"In my work, crowds march toward common goals, which revolve around dreams that human beings share as a society: the search for peace, the struggle for a better life. 

In my paintings, the “dreamers” tirelessly search for their dreams on the path of life that is often unknown to them but may lead to freedom and peace in another reality. My works encapsulate the world we live in today: the protests, the students marching together, united . They never give up and they are unified in their search for answers."
