The Inspirational Work of Mexican Photographer Victor de la Cueva

Victor Cuerva Photograph

When I need to think about inspiration it helps me to remember all the good moments I have lived through in my life — especially all the amazing people I have met and the good friendships I have made. These friendships started a few years ago during university years, when we first dreamt of being professionals and finding a nice job, doing what we love — and now all those dreams have become true.

Victor de la Cueva is a young Mexican artistic photographer whose work I find to be completely amazing. His personality and unique style are all reflected in his work. His passion for photography and his love for framing all kinds of people make his photos unique and exquisite to view. At just 23 years old, he is very talented, and he has already participated in some exhibits and been the subject of documentaries and magazines.

Finding Inspiration : Betsabee Romero

Ayate Car by Betsabee Romero

We don’t know or understand where it comes from. But we know we have it. Can you guess what I’m talking about? Yes, inspiration. To me, inspiration is about getting immersed in an extraordinary world of ideas and imagination, mixed with our deep feelings and our soul. And when you add an idea to this, then the final mixture will be a unique creation.

Inspiration can come to us in many different forms, and sometimes we don’t even notice it. I’ve been inspired by a song, a poster, a good talk with my friends, or by looking at others’ work or exhibitions.

My inspiration, Romero Britto : A colorful lifestyle

Colors of Brazil 1996 by Romero Britto

A few years ago, I discovered Romero Britto and fell in love with his art. All his creations are amazing, full of positive energy, I like all the vibrant designs that he shares through his art, printed in a variety of products. But what I like the most about his work is the perfect match he creates between beauty and charity. I find all the colors and images that are pictured in his designs completely amazing. This Brazilian artist, combines influences from Cubism with Pop Art to create an iconic style that, as The New York Times describes, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.”

It doesn’t matter if it’s a pen or crayons, a bunch of color pencils or colorful clothes — I incorporate it all into my lifestyle. I like the idea that life is a huge color palette you can mix into infinite combinations. These combinations make life more exciting, optimistic and lovely.

Romero Britto “considers the role of an artist to be an agent of positive change.” He serves as a benefactor — donating time, art and resources to over 250 charitable organizations and several boards such as, Best Buddies International, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
