Koldo Barroso IMAGINARIUM / Visions of Sounds
50 years of Magic, Imagination and Album Covers. A celebration of my 50th birthday on a trip through my many universes, dreamed of a collection of more than 60 original works of art.
Inspired by the King Crimson song “Starless”
THE NIGHT OF THE OWLETS
Looking for the light. The night of the owls … it’s time.
THE CLOCK OF MY DISTANCE
“The clock of my distance is a cradle of vipers
where I feed your absence with the poison of longing.
The clock of my distance, we invent it ourselves,
But you know that you wind it with the hand of my soul. “
LADY WITH TEAR
There is nothing more naked than a lady’s tear.
Watercolors, acrylics, inks
The sun is the King. The sun is Love. God is Love. God is the Sun.
THE SONG OF THE SEA GOAT
Inks, pencil and acrylics

Illustrations for the book “Kooky Pets”
Inside all of us lives a secret creature called “Kooky Pet” that catalyzes our most intimate dreams and longings. This book is a collection of imaginary portraits of these absurd and amusing characters, including stories and descriptions of witnesses.
GLIMPSES FROM THE MUMMIFIED WOOD
Sketch for the book “Visions of the Mummified Forest”
It is no coincidence that many of the creatures that came out of my pencils have horns and goat shapes. It has to do with my genes and those of my ancestors, who lived in a small town called Lendoño (land of pastures), in the mountains of the Basque Country.

The awakening of the godmother of all the creatures of the fairies in the forest. It is a very special moment that only happens once a year in the evening, coinciding with the arrival of the winter season: the rebirth of feminine energy. One of the main reasons why modern society in the Western world is so unbalanced is due to the loss of such feminine energy. Women represent the protection of Mother Nature. They maintain the wisdom of an instinctive and profound communication with the universe.
My baby Nova visited me to keep my ego down. Perfect!
SHE DIVINE TELLS ME – HARMONY
She Divine Tells Me is a project about female energy that emerges in our world to recover the balance of original and natural life.
