The Fallen of Ikarus
Life, in Villalba’s paintings, flow partially out of nature, youth and something that we hardly feel today, the present moment. Paintings that create a climate of softness, with the artist “Being the generator of his own history”. His imaginative paintings reflect a relationship with his memories that emanate a feeling of how we would like to merge our present, so common and ordinary yet so powerfully human. The precision of his technique that makes him an inventor of his own fiction also makes him an extraordinary artist. The perception of his unique paintings leave the viewer dazzled by such detail of the process. We can all appreciate such impeccable works of art that grow more and more in depth if we do not stop obstructing our gaze upon them. Thus, the perception of his unique paintings point to a new horizon of tomorrow, Villalba announcing his own moments as the groundbreaking artist of today.
