To elaborate this drawing, I drew inspiration from the legend of the Minotaur.
I focused, in particular, on the figure of the mythological beast, assessing it not as an executioner but rather, as a victim, imprisoned in the labyrinth.
The horse here is a metaphor for the Minotaur. A metamorphosis is taking place on him. The hairy coat of the animal becomes a playground for Roman writers while rusty road signs emerge from the strong skin of the steed. The rhythmic dynamism of the gallop strongly opposes /is strongly in contrast tothe staticity of the signs. The city is taking over the animal. The prairies are a distant memory for him, he lives day after day locked up in the labyrinthine streets of the capital that limit him, hinder him, suffocate him. Even birds turn into drones. He is turning into the city, he is the city.
