André Marcel Pagán


Memory is a constant in my paintings. In my work I keep visiting landscapes of home and day to day interactions of my present surroundings. Parallel, in recent years, I’ve started working self portraits with the use of selfie filters. Elongated rectangles and squares dominate my canvases evoking the cell phone screens that shape our reality.
