‘I didn't take a teddy bear to bed; I took Bambi whenever my mother got angry with me. He was my best friend.’ This is how Carlos Pazos commented on his work Aquella noche volví a llorar con Bambi (That night I cried again with Bambi). Art is very familiar with the powerful imagination that is part of childhood, such as the socialising function of games: soldiers who fight without dying, ships that sail on paper seas, neon Bambis, card figures that turn into magicians and other faithful friends with whom we share memory and life.

I don’t think about art when I’m working. I try to think about life
Jean-Michel Basquiat
