About the Artwork

"El Guardial" is an original oil on canvas painting by Alberto Insua. "As an artist, I explore emotions and how to express them in a visual manner. The feelings of relationships is what I am conveying." The stick-like figure, devoid of conventional facial features or detailed anatomy, embodies the essence of a guardian spirit rather than a literal human form. Its elongated headdress reaches toward the heavens, mirroring the Andean condor soaring among the mountain peaks, while its rooted base suggests a deep connection to the earth. Muted colors reflect the artist's connection to the natural world of the Andes. Warm hues of ochre evoke the sun-baked earth, while the deep browns echo the weathered rocks and ancient ruins. Muted greens hint at the verdant valleys and pockets of rainforest that cling to the mountain slopes. "El Guardial" depicts an ancient guardian who transcends the physical to capture the essence of the artist's connection to the spirit of Peru. It is a timeless figure rooted in the land, its gaze fixed on the future, forever protecting the people and the natural world of the Andes. View more of his works by visiting Alberto's Art Gallery.
