About

BALAGUER , Alex ( Barcelona 1968 ) During early childhood, Àlex Balaguer began to sketch motorcars symbolic of Maranello’s trademark vehicle.

The central theme of imagination is the subject, the car as a pretext. It is subjected to stress without falling into sensationalism bestowed with strongly charged emotion whilst approaching the world. In some cases, the imagination shows its formality as it enters into a phenomenon closing in on the dramatic movement and expressive voice that suggests a physiological space in which hope dominates this particular”….
