'Hide the Jewels' is a new original artwork by Spanish-Australian award-winning artist Alberto Sanchez. He prints, hacks and re-invents his own photographs using a unique hand colouring technique, creating his highly personal form of magic realism where photographic documentary is meshed with improbable landscapes. His work explores the notions of urban expansionism, capitalism and how individuals express themselves in an increasingly overloaded sensorial environment.
Alberto’s unique hand-coloured artworks have been gaining increased popularity over the last few years. The artist travels the world with his unique vision, taking photographs in black and white of the cities and landscapes that captivate him. Each work is then uniquely hand-coloured by the artist and is an original work of art.
The original image was photographed in New York City by the artist.
