Iván Castellón: Obras en Tiempos de Dictadura y Pandemia

The artist explains: "Until the 80s of the late 20th Century, military coups were a sinister part of life in Bolivia, same as pain and misery. Unfortunately, those events were re-edited in November of 2019, and for a period of one year, in which a handful of civilians, police and military; broke the constitutional order by taking power by the force; and making the massacre, the incarceration and the robbery of public property, their favorite means for domination and revenue. On top of such misfortunes came the advent of the coronavirus pandemic in March of 2020. These happenings are not foreign to my condition as sociologist and painter, and I have portrayed them with the same pain caused by the deaths of sons, mothers, and fathers; massacred at Huayllani and Senkata, or killed by the pandemic".

En palabras de Iván Castellón:"Hasta los años 80 del siglo pasado, los golpes militares eran parte siniestra de la vida en Bolivia, lo mismo que el dolor y la miseria. Desgraciadamente, esos sucesos se reeditaron en noviembre de 2019, cuando un puñado de civiles, policías y militares coartó el orden constitucional e hizo del asalto al poder, la masacre, el encarcelamiento y el robo al patrimonio público sus formas predilectas de dominio y provecho. A tales desdichas, se sumó el advenimiento del coronavirus en marzo de 2020. Estos hechos no son ajenos a mi condición de sociólogo y pintor, y los he retratado con el mismo dolor que causó la muerte de hijos, padres y madres, masacrados en Huayllani y Senkata, o muertos por la pandemia".
