"Pretext" by the Cuban artist Yasiel Alvarez Borges. Standing at width "80 cm" by height "120 cm" it is a figurative painting made of oil painting on canvas.

"The thirst for knowledge motivates me every day and from my personal experience, I propose a vision of what I understand is happening. Somehow I appropriate surrealism as a formal reference, using it as a pretext to discuss issues related to the behavior of man in our society. Therefore I am interested in addressing social issues and within this, making reference to concerns and the uncertainty that characterizes the individual as a thinking being."

"I am driven by the thirst of knowledge, and our ever changing society. This is why my works serve as a dialogue with time itself, and the experience that is acquired or future one" says Borges on his interview with Oleos & Canvas.
