I see these cityscape drawings fit for the theme “Masquerade” because I believe that cities in general present an image of themselves through architecture and layout that often contradicts it’s inner life taking place behind the impersonal facades of brick, glass and steel. In my drawings I solely focus on that mask of architecture consciously avoiding city life. Also, bringing the theme “Masquerade” back to a more artistic level, I often use the architecture and scenery of well know cities to create imaginary neighbourhoods or avenues encouraging the spectator to believe he or she is actually watching a scene from a city in particular, in this case New York, thus putting an idealised mask over actual places.
