          The artist seems to be deliberately merging the ephemeral, as symbolized by the paper kite, with the eternal, represented by the geometries that structure the work at the background.  The art of Angelito Antonio  has always been involved with defining the emotional properties of color.  Also, with the man and his kite merging with the buildings on the background, the work sums up  Antonio’s mastery of figures in space.
