Mr. Echeveste also performs as an expressionist painter. His work is characterized by the large size and strength of the brushstrokes. He develops his murals as he was working in a scenario, an act that is directly related to his work in the film industry. The themes of his creations are mainly horses, bulls and Indian raids. These elements allows the artist to express movement in his paintings, in addition to the mixture of powerful animals and vibrating colors. At the same time, his compositions are clearly defined by the solidity of the lines that provide their main structure. Elements in Echeveste's art pieces coexist in harmony and in contrast to chaos, taking over the spaces with an expansive and overwhelming force.
Mr. Echeveste is currently working in Spain in the development of his debut feature film as Film Director, a tango fantasy movie.
