The art of Mateo questions the perception and impact of traditional and ancient wisdom in western societies nowadays. His humanistic approach looks to reconnect with fundamental inspirations; a bridge to our origins as well as a romanticism erased in our contemporary society.
His striking painted traditional carpets featuring feminine features adorned with ancient motifs as well as spiritual metaphors, force us to question our cultural identity and universal consciousness in a relentless system that pushes for uniformity in contemporary mass culture.
