El Hombre Que Se Crea

"El Hombre Que Se Crea" is a stunning series of photos by Spanish artist Alejandro Maestre Gasteazi (born 1979). He captures his friend Julián covered in paint and explains:

Julián is a good friend who I deeply respect; he is a multidisciplinary and complete artist. He is, at the same time, film director, sculptor, painter, photographer and writer. He suggested time ago the idea of doing a portrait of him that could describe his capacity of creating and his constant search to understand his body and spirit. All these made me think about his work and helped me to develop the idea of this work.
Therefore, with this photograph series I intend to show an artist fighting to get to know and shape himself and turn into a better human being.
