Since then, Velez has worked on a very large number of projects in Latin America, the United States, and Spain.

Half Angels Half Demons

The angel is a being that religion has bequeathed us as a sign of purity, innocence, and goodness, from the same source, we have been sold to the devil as the form that represents evil par excellence, and at all times we have used between the duality of what's good and bad. Goodness, evil, naivety, and sin, a diatribe that has ruled humanity for as long as we can think back. This sample, beyond being a judgment, is the gaze of a creator who, after more than 30 years dedicated to portraiture, has managed to know, experience, and interpret many of the facets of the HUMAN feeling.
