Pablo Mejias’ Despertar de Acuario (which means Aquarius awakening) is a painting typical of the artist’s oeuvre, which centres on themes of death, eroticism, and metaphysics, often exploring the human condition. Mejias depicts hellscapes, a glimpse into human desire and fears, which invite viewers to confront the ineffable and the complexities of existence.

Mejias’ paintings resonate with dark and unsettling themes, where the grotesque and the fantastic intertwine. Predominantly working with oil paint, Mejias begins with the grisaille technique, he manipulates shades of grey before playing with light and dark contrasts, often using candles for dramatic effect.

Inspired by personal trauma, particularly the loss of his brother at a young age, Mejias delves into the human psyche, depicting turmoil and existential angst. His compositions often feature figures immersed in water – such as in this Aquarius awakening painting – symbolising both drowning and emergence.

In this Aquarius awakening painting, three figures emerge from the depths of a body of water, their forms blending seamlessly with the aquatic environment, illuminated by a vibrant colour palette of purple, blue, and yellow employed by Mejias.
