Happy Fourth!

Handwriting leads to better learning, creativity, mental health, social interaction, identity , self-reliant  expression and autonomy from artificial intelligence. The “PERSONAL IDENTITY” collection is an evolution from my previous work on handwriting which in 2016, which earned me an invitation to TEDx Talks and the publication of a book by University of Guadalajara. It will consist in a touring exhibition of paintings, sculptures, talks and workshops to display the allure of handwriting words, arithmetic, drawing and music notation. A catalog will be printed and publish an online video. I need funding to finish producing this new collection, so I am making a call for sponsors.

In addition to bringing fun and culture to public spaces, this captivating collection will present neurological facts in a simple, playful manner.

Espíritu de Aventura – Escultura en Venta / Spirit of Adventure

Espíritu de Aventura es el nombre de una escultura fundida en bronce y también de un cuento. Ambos los inspiró las historia verdadera de un muchacho de 19 años que llegó navegando solo desde San francisco California  a Nuevo Vallarta en un pequeño velero de madera. Para comprar el velero me dijo haber tenido que vender todas sus cosas. Lo hizo porque de pronto se sintió “atrapado por el sistema”, al verse forzado a tomar un gravoso préstamo para continuar con sus estudios universitarios. No tenía siquiera seguridad, al terminar, de conseguir empleo para poder pagar. Decidió no sacrificar su juventud sino vivir la vida y realizar los viajes con que soñaba. Su historia me pareció conmovedora porque a la mayoría de la gente se le va la vida sin atreverse a realizar sus sueños, como en el poema “Instanes de J.L. Borges”.

"Espíritu de Aventura" Escultura por Federico León De La Vega

“Espíritu de Aventura” Escultura por Federico León De La Vega

Una vez montada sobre su base de piedra puse en una placa con esta frase.

“La Vida nos lleva por pasajes que demandan decisión. Si tememos, la oportunidad pasa, tal vez para  no volver.  Navegar con fe y valentía nos lleva  a buena ventura” y al final aparece este versículo: 2 Corintios 5:7: “Porque por fe andamos, que no por vista”

La escultura mide Altura 162 cm,  Largo 132 cm,  Ancho 86 cm.  Colocada sobre la piedra alcanza una altura de 3 m. Actualmente en venta por: $375,000.00 pesos mn. Compradores de arte genuinamente interesados por favor contactarme vía el correo electrónico: fleondelavega@gmail.com

"Spirit of Adventure" by Federico León De La Vega

“Spirit of Adventure” by Federico León De La Vega

Spirit of Adventure is the name of a bronze cast sculpture and also a short story. Both were inspired by the true story of a young  man,  who at the age of 19, sailed solo from San Francisco California to Nuevo Vallarta on a small wooden boat. To buy boat he sold all of his belongings. He did it because he had felt “trapped by the system”, as he was unable to continue his studies without taking on a grievous loan. He did not even know if he could get a job once he would finished studying.  So he decided to dedicate his youth to sail the world, as was his dream. His story touched me because most people do not dare to follow their dreams, as poet J.L. Borges regrets in his poem “Instantes”.

Once finished, I wrote on a plaque by the sculpture “Life takes us through passages that demand decision. If in fear, the chance may pass us by, perhaps never to return. Sailing in faith and courage will lead to good fortune” and at the end this Bible verse: 2 Coritnthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith, not by sight”

The sculpture measures H64-L52-W34 inches and once on its stone base it stands almost 10 feet tall. I am selling it for USD $25,000.00  Truly interested art buyers please contact me by email: fleondelavega@gmail.com
