Paul Amundarain (n.1985) belongs to a generation that received the legacy of the grid - a form that allowed modernity to be structured - already deconstructed. His research tries to solve problems in social aspects, the development of man in the city and his work as a record of his own experiences using technological processes that characterizes him.
The grid that previous generations reinserted in the skin of the cities through urban interventions, is multiplied in his graphic base paintings assuming it has multiple meanings: gird, fence, grating overlapping visual signals on his own experience of mobility.
However when he quotes a kinetic-like Carlos Cruz Diez and evokes his physichromies, he insert disturbing social imagines in a gesture which remind us that we are in turbulent times an that the dream deposited in the perceptual participation has “failed”, as the same adjective he uses as a title for one of his paintings with the grid.
