Mexi Lane said:
“he found the adaptation of his humanoid prototype also in this issue, building an egg where ‘the stone man’ float into the space, shooted from burning cosmic rays.
The genius is into the absence, into the essential and in the simplicity where Merlino Mayo can to target the contest theme, using a ricorrent element into his works. As a “real” contemporary artist.”
