'Viva Muerte (Long Live Death) is a new original artwork based on a poem by Federico García Lorca. Alberto Sanchez 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.
This series is exploring finishing works in a round format. Furthering the artists ideas of urban 'dreams' or fragments from our childhood memories.
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 Byron Bay, Australia by the artist.
