I’d rather want everything and have nothing, than have everything and want nothing. Because at least when you want something your life has a meaning: it’s worthwhile. From the moment you think you have everything, you have to search for meaning in other things. I spent half my life wanting everything and having nothing; and now I have everything and I don’t want anything” – Vik Muniz

Walking through the PINTA Art Fair was similar to drifting in between South America, Spain and Portugal. Implications of certain series of events occurring in these countries, were concealed in the displayed artworks. Extraordinary artists illustrated all angles of their countries of origin, culture and social struggles that affect the population. Brazilian photographers displayed particular pictures, documenting the less fortunate and disadvantaged communities that are on the increase, with Spanish being spoken by the majority of attendees.

The ambience was gorged with energy and the entire  art on display seemed to echo this strong message: “This is only the beginning and this is our time…. NOW!”
