FANELO AGUAYO has been making films for two decades in Spain, Boston and New York City. But he has been a painter as well, working mostly with oils.

Painting is for this Spanish-American artist “a need like eating or sleeping -he said. But it is also a method to let go, to fight the demons and make the angels fly. It is a tool to find the truth and expose the lies. It is a universe where you can be heard and understood, a vaccine to survive without going insane. It is a path to live and let die, a passport to enjoy today and tomorrow”.

In 2015 Fanelo won the “Marian Anderson Memorial Award for Portraiture” at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, in Summit.
