" René Sagastume is from Honduras, and traces of his native culture informs his delightful modern canvases. You can see how Sagastume evolve his characters in layer upon layer of drawing and colour, creating and evershifting animation. The resulting collisions of form and colour are unexpected and show growth with Sagastume's every exhibit."
