“The poster Bridge was born for participating in different community projects as a self-taught bass player and guitarist, and in recent decades as a poster artist, have generated a taste for sharing and expressing for people the importance of doing for and with others. I believe that there are many things to do with others, in the places we inhabit and we cannot generate a change and lead a transition of society from an individualistic vision and suddenly, it requires everyone to turn around and walk connected to new horizons. to start with small but constant steps. Music and art in general manage to establish personal links between human beings to create a unity from diversity. The idea of linking us through, as Vargas Llosa says, “good literature builds bridges between different people and, making us enjoy, suffer or surprise us, unites us below the languages, beliefs, uses, customs and prejudices that separate us” And this reminds us that there are more things that unite us than those that separate us” tell us Hugo.
