This painting belongs to the collection of Big Bang pearls, which Puigmarti developed since 2007. According to the artist, we are all «children» of the Big Bang, including his characters, hence the title.

In this period, Puigmarti investigates using all kinds of pictorial materials, from spray cans to markers, through the use of latex to give texture to his creations. The result are highly dynamic works that invite the observer to discover their impossible shapes.

Puigmarti’s works from the last period are always characterized by having been created in a thoughtless, spontaneous and automatic way, in short, in a very surreal way. The entire Big Bang pearls series shows us full-length characters and faces in which we find a great technical deployment, an overflowing creativity, as well as many areas decorated with that spontaneous filigree that characterizes his pictorial creations.
