"An old tobacco factory in Madrid seemed like the perfect place to do a proper (and properly sized) tribute to the classic Optimo Sign, with smoke and all. This piece is very personal as it talks a lot about where I come from and the influences in my work but at the same time it gives an optimistic word to those who might not know the context behind the piece."
