The Magic of Life, Magia de la Vida in Spanish, is one of the most significant pieces by Reydel Espinosa in 2021.

It’s a very symbolic artwork, which depicts how the main character, a creature like a species of gazelle, ridden by a monkey, is giving lives. For example, the scene, in which a pelican brings another species from the ocean to be fed, represents the magic of nature and how nature prospers.

The gazelle-like figure is holding an ankh, which is an Egyptian symbol of life and it once again gives a positive message about the circle of life in prosperity. Animals are given life in his painting with virtues and intelligence to do impossible things.

“It is a sacred mission and necessity for me as an artist, to bring these inner images to light as they represent some unique spiritual value.

I owe my artworks to be seen by the world.”
Reydel said.
