Catalogue of Artworks by Christian Riffel (Poeta)

“Ver sólo se aprende Mirando” (You only learn to see by looking) is the new exhibition by Christian Riffel aka Poeta in UNION Gallery.  Populating the space with drawings, paintings, videos and installations, the artist invites us to rethink our way of seeing.

Exhibition in UNION Gallery

In this unique solo show we get a glimpse into Riffel’s internal processes and artistic trajectory.  With delicate pieces in watercolour and ink we see the genesis of an idea or mural.  In refined pastel canvases we’re confronted with a more subtle version of the artist’s abstract geometric muralism.  The installations and sculpture provide hints as to the artist’s current musings and future directions.

Artist Jorge Pomar (Amor) takes to the streets in Poland

Jorge Pomar aka Amor recently did an epic new piece at the Monumental Art Festival in Gdansk, Poland.

Entitled “Schody do słońca”, which means “Stairway to the Sun”, the piece represents another step in the artist’s examination of international crisis and warfare through the lenses of vexillology (the study of flags), geometry and the study of color.


The design for the piece is composed of 20 different flags which contain the sun as element in their design, which are piled up to represent countries united, leading to a clear pathway up to the symbol of the sun.

The mural was painted on the side of a building which was once home to Lech Wałęsa, the leader of the “Solidarity” movement, winner of the Nobel Peace Price in 1983, and first president to Poland after the fall of communist regime (1990 – 1995).


Countries featured are: Tibet, Nepal, Argentina, Moldova, Malasia, Philippines, Kiribati, Mongolia, Australian Aboriginal Flag, Japan, Bangladesh, Uruguay, Kazakhstan, Taiwan, Niger, Antigua and Barbuda, Malawi, Macedonia, Rwanda and finally Poland.
