Urban Tales ( A City of People)

Taking his signature theme of nostalgic childhood from a rural setting to an urban one. Racuya enriches his growing artistic repertoire. From open fields, he retreats to the small, intimate corners found tucked away between the alleys, nooks, and crannies, exploring these tightly – knit connections among families, couples, and friends that live in the city. Whether it’s a trip to the arcade, playing by the curbside gutters, or lounging by the sala, there are sure tales to be found in his urban snaphots.
