ART AND NATURE
Art and Nature have been interlaced ever since human beings decided to express themselves artistically. In the prehistoric art, such as the Altamira or Lascaux caves, two outstanding samples thereof, humans reproduce scenes of his environment as a means to reveal concepts, ideas or suggestions. Over time, the landscape abandoned its former supremacy so as to take up as background until, within a given moment, it became emancipated and returned so as to develop a leading role. Ever since, those artistic expressions of the natural, have turned to be a means of liberalizing, deregulated, disrupting from any prior and, hence, a pioneering and sign of artistic vanguard.
