Brutally honest drawings, simple, paradoxical, tremendously poetic… So much that we become invisible before them because they are a living reflection of ourselves. This is how Dibujos invisibles, a beautiful compilation of drawings by illustrator Gervasio Troche published by Lumen. The book gathers together a selection of drawings posted on www.portroche.blogspot.com between 2009 and 2012. Troche’s world is reminiscent of the work of René Magritte. It deals with music, the cosmos, silence and solitude among the crowd.

 

Troche was born in Argentina in 1976 but grew up in Mexico and France to later settle in Uruguay, where he’s currenly living. He’s been drawing since he was a child. He first studied in a cartoon workshop and then at Montevideo’s National Fine Arts School for several years. He has shown his witork in two solo exhibitions and has collaborated in a number of local and international media.
