Cuban artist Jose López Pardo's graphite on canvas drawings are stunning and explore the realm of aviation.

His masterful art works feature different scenes of flight and the clouds. The entire series titled 'Black Box and Sighting' is monochromatic and employs the symbol of the plane as a metaphor for the modern man and the uncertainty of life. The sensational series is a commentary on the trials and tribulations of daily life and the events that alter our universe. The black and white circular plane and smoke shot can be interpreted as the cyclical nature of life and the shots without any sight of the planes and just clouds can reflect on loneliness and our inevitable deaths.

Jose López Pardo's work is deeply personal, sentimental and uses the canvas to tell a story open to individual interpretation.
