ESQUINAS is an exhibit made of a series of visual pieces realized on architectural spaces through implicit experimentation of visual arts. This series is inspired by op art and is created with the help of architectural spaces, such as ceilings, walls, floors, etc., through deformed abstract drawings to obtain images dependent on the observer’s movement through said spaces.
