Wilay Méndez Paez's drawings and paintings are part of a process that often leads to create the sculptures and collages. They are often a preliminary study of the movements that he later wants to achieve in a bi-dimensional or tridimensional way. Sometimes, they are new experimentations with lines, shades, and curves, and they always represent a fundamental step into Wilay's creative process. As a sort of personal archive, the drawings as well as the paintings are the only witnesses to the different stages of the artworks and eventually remain the only document of the art pieces that are not with the artist anymore.
Here you can find a selection of drawings and paintings of the series Connections/Conexiones and Siguarayal.
