WHO IS FERRÓ?

When I was a 9-year-old boy, a teacher encouraged us in class to express ourselves artistically by drawing whatever we wanted. It was a holiday and I was full of enthusiasm to put my emotions and thoughts on paper through vibrant colors and abstract shapes. However, my joy turned to disbelief when, as I showed my creation to the teacher, she tore it to pieces in front of my eyes. That act left a deep mark on me, filling me with fear and rejection of artistic expression.

For years, I avoided painting and sharing my art, fearful of possible rejection. Years later, after a significant change in my life, I finally find the strength to share my art with the world.

Today, I look back and recognize that my teacher’s action, while painful, was a turning point in my life. While I don’t blame her, I understand that her act may have been a result of her own internal struggles and past experiences. More than resentment, I feel gratitude for the personal growth I experienced in the wake of that incident.

My work “Angel“, inspired by the original drawing that was destroyed that day, represents resilience and rebirth.

Through my art, I seek to convey a message of hope and love, demonstrating that, despite adversity, love always prevails.
