On the ground, naked, rejected, shattered. As the volcano spits out rocks, lava, chaos and destruction. You were also ejected from the mouth of the volcano that broke you. Rejected, you fell hard onto the ground and curled inwards, wanting to disappear from the face of the earth. But as time goes by, you listen patiently and notice that the volcano begins to tire. The volcano cannot spit fire forever. Slowly, it begins to calm down. Slowly, dawn approaches and the lava transforms into the warm rays of the morning sun which caress your skin. You cannot believe how beautiful the new day is after that infinite night of darkness. Look at the mouth of the volcano and let it be known that now you know its limits, and you will build your strength on them.
Javier Ideami’s works focus on the contrast between humanity and
the forces that shape nature and the world. The human face and
figure, full of beauty, fragility and courage, face the challenges and
the questions posed by nature and our existence. Ideami’s works
are a celebration of the beauty of human emotion and resilience in
the middle of the neverending storms of life. Ideami’s works express
what makes us human, deep emotional states like hope and
loneliness, and the miracle of our existence written on the courage
and strength of the human spirit, as it raises itself among the
thunder and chaos from which its fragile and fleeting beauty is born.

combination of skills and fields, including: fine art photography,
digital art, filmmaking, art installations, interactive technology and
