The truth about this painting is that this girl named Andra is from Germany. When she was here in Buenos Aires on the last Christmas, she was sad because she was missing Berlin’s Christmas. She said missed the cookies, cakes, chocolates and all the things they are used to eating during the season.
Here’s to you, Andra!
This portrait is one of my favorites one because of the details in its skin.
I could assure that
if we wear a mask,
wig, even a clown nose
we could feel free to act as we want.
enjoy it and feel something like freedom
either you would feel trapped in an identity
that does not correspond to you.
Fell free anytime
I’m not sure if I started this art life at some point or if my life was always like this.
My name is Mayro Toyo, a visual artist. Drawing during my childhood was like a game then becomes a habit that would accompany me for the rest of my life. I always have been curious and would delve into simple things.
Innovating is essential. I work with new materials and techniques frequently; I am in constant development and have a lot of fun in the meantime.
My technique is spontaneous, and the concept is about introversion. It’s alive. I paint mostly people, portraits, identities. It’s human. My art conveys feelings and emotions. I think words are inadequate to explain my art. Art must speak for itself.@mayrotoyoart
