One in five people live in poverty risk in Spain, to this the fact that, according to data Caritas, three million people living on the street or have a non-decent housing is added.
The exhibition of photographs and paintings of artists Belmar and Marian F. Juan Sánchez Muñoz intended as a warning to those people who, for one reason and another are forced onto the street.
The exhibition consists of 16 thematic sections, each formed by a photograph and a painting.
32 works in the intention to put on the table and bring out those people who, even despite their presence, often for us are "Invisible".
The show begins this Friday January 16th in the showroom of "Rigoberta Menchú" Cultural Center Leganés (Madrid), and then begin a tour of various localities as Eagles (Auditorium and Congress Centre "Infanta Doña Elena" 5th March to 5 April), Cartagena (UNED Associated Center, September 2015), Lorca (Cultural Hall CajaMurcia from 2 to 30 October) and Murcia city (exhibition hall of the General Archive of the Region of Murcia, the 4 to March 31, 2016).
A little to go out for a walk in any of our cities, it is not difficult to see people who, for one reason and another, are driven to find "something" in those spaces.
That "something" is between the limits of subsistence to charity, passing many factors that ultimately, lead a person on the street.
However, this should be a worrying phenomenon in our society, we can say that almost goes unnoticed and even depending on how we display it sometimes is given to us as entertainment.
The exhibition "Invisible" to draw attention no longer on street people, but about the reasons that produce such circumstances.
A reflection on those people who are so used to see almost can say that part of the urban landscape and often just pay more attention to them.
Therefore, as photographer John F. Belmar points out, this exhibition aims to bring them out of this invisibility to make us aware of a reality that, sadly, today is a hot topic.
To Belmar, it is move consciences, to open a window into that world we see from a distance and, although we attribute to normal, there is nothing natural that there.
When reality staring us in the face is to understand that the great ideals of social justice are more than just a good topic of conversation for the desktop.
For the painter Marian Sánchez Muñoz, "Invisibles" is a combined exhibition dedicated waiting, hope, regret and helplessness of those who transgressed the line that divides life, I have everything or run out.
To display these street lives searched photographing reality like paint and paint the truth like a picture.
The aim of the authors is to have, based on an image, the stories behind our protagonists through abstract paintings of great significance.
The sample is wrapped by the texts of artists like Manuel Coronado renowned painter or poet Soren Peñalver Murcia.
For the director of People's University in Mazarrón (Murcia), José María López "Invisibles" Ballesta has managed to make visible a drama that lives with us and, at the time, has managed to also recreate artistically, with the combination of two techniques, the reality that surrounds us.
