“Pino is a stork that returns to the Nieuw Gent district in Ghent, every October. The neighbors have adopted her as a pet and made her a symbol. Here families from many countries, religions and races coexist, making this place a meeting and mixing point, a second home for most of them” the artist said.
Taquen is a Spanish visual artist and illustrator. Interested in changes and relationships between people, in his works he loves to interact with the territory and its characteristics. His rounded style is composed of a very careful and soft color palette with which he manages to express feelings and a sense of fluidity of time that envelops us in his subjects.
