“When an artwork of mine takes about two months from start to finish, that piece is more than oil colours on a piece of fabric. There’s an intimacy built after weeks of just the two of us. Nights, days together. It witnesses all sort of happenstance going on with me and around me. Like a good friend, it talks back as well. It challenges me. Comforts me. Care for me…
I’m grateful to you for been my companion all this weeks, dear friend. It’s time for you to meet the world and make friends of your own. Hope to see you again in this life…”
Alberto Martinez (El Flaco)
It’s opening night. The stage is set as the curtain rises on Alberto Martinez’s latest masterpiece, SHOWSTOPPER.
As the lights come up we find ourselves transported to Shaftesbury Avenue in London’s West End. Characters from theatreland emerge to perform together for one night only! Alberto’s unique, bold style shines through the picture as recognisable images are re-imagined with influences of his Cuban upbringing.
The car from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is now a Cuban Chevrolet with butterfly wings and Aladdin’s magic lamp is a repurposed light bulb transformed with kerosene and a wick. The nuns from Sister Act are created from childrens’ toys and a floating green candle blows bubbles into the sky.
Alberto Martinez invites you to join him on stage in this bold and magical theatrical masterpiece, ‘Showstopper’.
