-“FACEBOOK BOYS” by Daniel Acosta-

“Esse est percipi aut percipere” (To be is to be seen)  George Berkeley, 18thCentury-England.
Today social networking (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and globalization validate more than ever this philosophical premise of three centuries ago: you exist as long as you’re perceived.
For this project I took pictures posted by friends on their Facebook pages and do ​​their portraits.
Paintings:
“Malka”  80×80 cms. (acrylic on canvas)
“Mauricio” 60×80 cms. (acrylic on canvas)
“Nicolás” 60×100 cms. (acrylic on canvas)
Drawings:
“Nico” (pencil on cardboard)
“Kevin” (colored pencil on black paper)
“Damian” (watercolor pencil and ink on yellow paper)
