Llegamos Volando

This piece reflects one of the most influential events in Ecuadorian history: the introduction of the railroad. Despite many geographic difficulties, the railroad helped mobilize the masses, and was economically beneficial to Ecuador. A common expression for describing the arrival of a train is ‘llegamos volando,’ which literally translates to 'we arrive flying;' the expression is also used for a fast moving object. Hence, the train here is drawn as if it were flying in the sky, and the goods it brings falling to the people below. The native style of the painting reflects the artist’s study with the late Gonzalo Endara Crow, one of Ecuador’s most renowned artists.
