“Coded Wisdom” by Martín Revolo, aka “Shulka”
“In my attempt to tell a story I create imagery that is both real and surreal laced in fantasy. The story continues to grow as I rely on my conscious and subconscious to create and transfer those thoughts to an image. It is from that process that I find myself being most present in me.”
Martín resides in all of his work, though each viewer may take a different meaning from his images, all have experienced a part of the narrative that is the artist himself.
It is not the aesthetics of the image that defines his style, but rather the ability to unmask the “personal mythologies” of both the artist and the viewer. Such narratives can be intimate, ironic, or detached, but they are always thoughtfully incorporated into his work.
