Rodolfo kronfle bio circle
Adrián is a keen observer of Ecuador's past and political present, and the ways these two narratives and their shallow discourses intertwine and reflect each other. Although many artists have dealt with similar issues, his visual vocabulary and signifying strategies are very sophisticated.”
