Las Ánimas (2014, Seville) is the creative duo made up of Trini Salamanca and Pablo Párraga. Their work has a strong symbolic, mystical, tribal and esoteric component, and lies on the border between art and design. Using a language of minimalist, geometric and iterative patterns, they experiment with the shapes and textures of materials to create an iconography with a retro-futuristic, transgressive, ceremonial and deeply evocative aesthetic.
Their aesthetic universe encompasses references as distant as science fiction, the tribal world, the distortion of reality, cybernetics, duality, experimental electronic music or architectural brutalism; an imaginary perspective that joins the elements of its environment and reinterprets them from an atypical and personal vision.
Their body of work includes limited edition pieces of furniture, sculptures, interventions and unique objects such as totems designed and created in their own studio, which defy functionality and form. The works are encompassed by a symbolic aesthetic universe full of emotions that transport the viewer to a spiritual atmosphere lost in time.
