Vorja Sánchez is a Barcelona-based artist fascinated by nature. He expresses all his love for it giving life to its elements, fauna, and flora through marvelous illustrations. I have a special appreciation for his series of fantastical cloud creatures.
It is fun to play at giving an appearance to fauna and flora that a priori (rationally) should not have. Nature, being ubiquitous, allows you to empathize with a creature even if you have never seen it before. You can create a being with a new appearance, but if you follow the guidelines you observe in the natural elements, it will be familiar, friendly. That’s the point I’m trying to reach with my work. Nature, in its inherent essence, grants the same dynamics of form regardless of the transcendence or size of each being, plant or element. In this way, a microorganism can have the same spheroidal structure as a galaxy, or the stone of a fruit the labyrinthine appearance of the shell of some type of invertebrate.Vorja Sánchez
