Basilica del Voto Nacional – Quito


Art has been an essential element in my life since I was a kid, and I have always tried to use it to represent myself and show different aspects that constitute me. This acrylic painting is inspired in my hometown, Quito-Ecuador, which is one of the most colorful and beautiful places that I have ever been to. The Basílica del Voto Nacional (Basilica of the National Vow), which is depicted in this painting, is the largest neo-Gothic church in South America, and I consider that it is one of the things that represent Quito the best. However, besides its astonishing architecture and kind people, I have always been in love and amazed by Quito’s unique sky, which is completely unpredictable and an important part of this work of art.
