The lines on my paintings are primitive and simple but they represent the mood of apeople that sees beyond its present
day challenges.A people
inspired by its surrounding,The sea,the mountain,street
life,The market place, its music.The colors on Vidal's paintings remind us of the magic of the tropic, where The green,The
blues,The reds,the yellows,take on life of their own and become chromatic gods that bewitck you with an ultra-sensory
perception on beauty.
like Vidal puts it "During
the carnival in Barranquilla all of society unite and become one, leaving aside their vicissitudes.everyone become one body
and soul,dancing to the beat of funin struments,reaching to the heights of their dreams."Capturing emotions like love,jealousy,solicitude,violence,desperation,resentment,hope
and freedom all hidden behin a mask and portrayed on my paintings as a vehicle for a lenguage of love and tragedy"
