To inquire about this piece, contact Araujo

"Dnepr to Infinity" forms part of my Tomorrowland series that I developed in 2008 to 2010, and continue to paint and have recently completed this new piece. The imagery is inspired by both Disney's Space Mountain (a favorite amusement ride) and a circus arena in the city of Dnipropetrovsk (also called Dnepr). Dnepr has been the major center of the steel industry from the beginning of the 20th century until the present. It has also dominated in the machine-building and aero-spacebuilding industry since the 1950s, and in a sense is a city of the technological future. Through researching about this arena, I've made several paintings depicting this site with resemblance to a spaceship influence. For this piece, I softened the building facade and its atmosphere, in monochromatic bright green-blue tones, merging the two, seen as a memory of Dnepr!

Dnepr to Infinity, will be first exhibited at "Le Salon de Diego" SFAI Alumni Exhibition at the Diego Rivera Gallery, at the San Francisco Art Instititute. Exhibition dates: November 5th to November 11th, 2017. Opening reception: Saturday, November 11th from 4:00-6:00pm.
