Galué´s work is a poetic tribute that takes its roots in the Latin American literary movement "Magical Realism" and breaks with classic narrative mechanisms. His plastic proposal focuses on the human figure but without real concern about imposing conventional structures in the composition. The elements crowding his paintings are memories, daily activities and typical expressions of the Caribbean people, that are a constant feature and allow distinctive readings and interpretations.
