The TV is dead and now there is Facebook, the new TV: my Facebook account is my channel, and other people’s pages are other channels. I am certain of this.

.

I know that I’m just another artist, and, like you, I want to survive, in this world that leaves little room for art and artists.  I fought for 3 promises all of my life, but up to this moment … I don’t know.  Maybe I should read more.” – Rafael  Maldonado

.

When asked “Why would you like to submit your artwork to Balaclava.Q?

Rafael responded: “Because I trust your instincts Stiofan.

Maldonado has kindly given Balaclava.Q free reign in  selecting works to the stage one of this project. I’ve selected from (what I class to be) three areas of his works (which I hope resonate with Maldonado’s “3 promises”). These works look at obscuring the face and consist of : Self-portraits, Art-porn and Collage.
