Amor de Hombre (Colección NFT)


### 50% of the earnings from this NFT will be donated by Bran Sólo to a Spanish LGBT organization ###

Amor de Hombre is a collection of illustrations by Bran Sólo representing masculinity and emotions. In Spain we have a plant called «Amor de hombre». It is a red plant, which grows anywhere with a little water. If it doesn’t get much light it turns red, and its stems grow and hang down the facades of houses to the ground. For me, this plant represents the emotions, often romantic, that try to escape from the body, as if sprouting from a crack in a rock. Many try to prevent it from growing, from being visible, but in the end it is inevitable. It always grows.

The bodies become blue because for Bran Sólo there is nothing more admirable than the sea. He is in love with the Mediterranean and, for that reason, he replaces the human figure with the flat, infinite blue. There is nothing more perfect, warmer, more eternal than the sea.

All items have a print run of 100 copies NFT. They are collectible items, each different model is numbered in name.
