The work invites a critique of conformity in today’s society, but the artist said that interpretations can vary according to the imagination of his audience.

“I can make the painting with an intention, but people are free to interpret it as they wish. They have even discovered things in my paintings that I had no idea were there”, stated Santiago Ribeiro.

“People can see and feel things according to their own imaginative capacity,” he continued. “I only create one thing and people are free to feel what comes to mind. That to me is interesting”.

Parallax took place at MG Studio, a creative studio located in a privileged space, close to the LA Live complex in downtown Los Angeles – where the Museum of the Grammys and the Microsoft Theater are also located. However, his most recent work lacks any figures. It is a painting entitled ‘Empty City’, for which the flight of people inspired him because of the war in Ukraine.
