Hugo Alonso is an artist working in Salamanca (Spain). His training as a painter lurks behind his audiovisual creative work, which stands out for its devilish editing influenced by film-makers like Chris Cunningham and musicians on the electronic scene like Aphex Twin.

In recent years his work has leaned towards multidisciplinary dialogues with the history of film. This music video is conceived as a remake of the film Peeping Tom (Michael Powell, 1960) condensed into less than three minutes. What at first looks like a striptease in a sordid domestic setting gives way to a menacing relationship of submission, which thanks to the magic of the editing and the stop-motion technique turns into a psychedelic nightmare in which the spectator takes the final decision over the fate of the characters. The soundtrack is also by the artist.

José Sancho does not conceal the voluptuousness of his female torsos; he highlights it. These torsos are symmetrical from front, but on the other hand, from the side, the juxtaposition of concave and convex forms creates dynamism.

The series of paintings depicting the audience ceremonies of European ambassadors hold a unique place among the works of Jean-Baptiste Vanmour of Valenciennes, who lived in İstanbul from 1699 until his death in 1737.
