Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Lee Perry

David Cata

DavidCata turns his own body into a canvas. He captures his memories on his hands with art of needling his palms and captures it further through a camera. An artist, videographer, photographer and musician, he is flawlessly exhibiting that art has no boundaries. The magic that skin holds is impeccable. As Lee Perry once said ‘Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own’. So, we must.

‘bajo mi piel’ (under my skin), is a combination of musical track and photographic project. He places the pictures of his loved ones under his skin. People often touch us beyond our skin, sometimes they touch our souls and we keep reminiscing them, it inspires us, memories becomes a symbol of strength. This project was completed during isolation period faced by pandemic. We see it as a representation of beauty and strength that comes from introspection, when one is alone with their own thoughts. As we move forward to post pandemic phase, we must acknowledge how it has gotten us closer to each other.
