Mapaglifos is a group of pieces of work in which I stamp sense and poetry on the maps that mark mi existence. A glifo is a written, painted or engraved sign in the stones (petroglyph), in the land (geoglyph) or in the maps (map glyph). The signs that excel in my maps are animals, most of them are docile, that I discover when drawing lines in the streets of Paris, Tel Aviv, Washington and so on.
Like the drawings in Nazca´s desert made by hundreds of figures that can be only seen from the air, the map glyphs also represent a scene that I recognize only from the air and I perceive a new urban approach.
I have not only used in this work graphic techniques such as silk screen printing that makes the urban cartography much more evident, but also I have started, a few years ago, working with this kind of pictorial style. In them, the suggestion that the icon causes comes with great spaces of color and textures that isolate the cartographic mark and that take this kind of figuration to more subjective interests.
Mapaglifos is also about planning, it is about an urban planning already established; the map has something rational, scientific, and very strict, apparently it does not change, and my involvement is what really gives it another sense. The map glyphs that I find in the cartographic world are a sort of urban bestiary: many animals highlight a space within a great city and that tiny part of the city transformed into moose, horses, elephants, pigs or sea horses turns out to be utopia.
Urban utopia hopes to live in the crest of the rooster, in the horns of the bull or in the brains of the elephant, urban utopia conceives that the streets of any given citizen can be appreciated in a work of art; urban utopia is knowing that from the lines I apparently draw at random unnoticed animals emerge and walk the continents.
That is how Leonardo Da Vince discovered battles in the spots of the walls, and that is how the boys could see elephants riding bicycles in the clouds, the maps revealed to me covered by zoomorphic spaces that also mark my own journeys and trips. When curbing the ample urban spaces in thin and secure grounds, I restrict the vital space to urban islands and that is how I draw near my own birth place, in which spatial and politic limits distinguish my insularity.(Ibrahim Miranda, 2011)
