Synapse is inspired by the mythology and architecture influence of other times. By using a theme as old as mythology for inspiration, and adding his special touches, Martinez Vanegas achieves an updated, new vision. He quotes celebrated composer Giuseppe Verdi: "Tornate all'antico e sarà un progresso," which means "Let us turn to the past; that will be progress.”
The artist’s fine and delicate drawings and paintings feature great artistic detail and contemporary beauty. The technique of his art is mainly color pencil on paperboard and acrylic on canvas. Martinez Vanegas seeks to have those who view his art “feel inspirational impulses” while admiring the secret meaning and story transmitted through his works.
