In those nocturnal domestic scenes, inside which everything usually happens in calm, in an instant multiple stories slip and intermingle in an apotheosis of chaos. Promiscuity, jealousy, infidelity -real or imagined-, voyeurs ..., the intimacy of domestic life, which often turns out to be absurd, laughable or extravagant, is an essential part of the master's work. Pedro Pablo is interested in the world of the forbidden, in particular what is hidden, such as the experience of the sexual outside of social conventions, those private secrets where we recognize ourselves as imperfect, terrible.

Pedro Pablo Oliva
I have always tried to link my life with creativity. I believe in everyday life, that of conflict, that of contradictions; there is precisely the theme and the germ so as not to turn the work into a daily repetition. I have tried to be a chronicler of my time, something like a kind of pictorial press or sculpture newscast. Everything that happens forces me to use different shapes, themes, and images. But beyond political or social events, I have observed humanity and its psychological dimension, with its strengths and weaknesses. I enjoy moving between drawing, painting, and sculpture, always keeping an eye on the peculiarities of my country, but also on human struggles that are universal. I think you can find truth in everyday life. If my spiritual state is chaos or my context is chaos, then too, my work is chaos; if the situation is confused, my work is confused.
