Artist Yamandú likes to say the word “accumulation” to describe himself. Beauty and simplicity, beauty inside simplicity and the way things naturally come together is what keeps him going. Inside a healthy playground, there is an ongoing activity with different kinds of output. He is always looking around, distracted and concentrated, scanning with or without purpose his surroundings, allowing the heart to see beyond what the eye captures.
