In "Pablo Caviedes ON THE MAP" short film, the film maker, PH Daniel Sanchez, follows Ecuadorian artist based in Inwood, Pablo Caviedes in his process of creating a monumental series of works inspired by phenomenon of the American identity and the role immigration in development of the country.
This 08:25 minutes movie is shot in New York City where Caviedes has been living and creating his art since 2003.
“On the Map” represents a personal view of immigration; that is, a graphic perspective of what Caviedes considers a common denominator of our American identity.
Caviedes project is comprised of three parts, represented by three faces which act as a visual metaphor for this country’s historical situation.
The third part of the book focuses on Andy Warhol, an icon of U.S. arts and culture who has world-wide recognition but whose connection to immigrants has been relegated to the sidelines.
He represents the second generation of immigrants, who leave behind an enormous cultural legacy, in Warhol’s case a new artistic paradigm that revolutionized the art world.
