Brizuela, a patient at the Colonia d’Oliveros psychiatric clinic in the town of Rosario, rarely communicates with people. Nothing is known about his family, and not even his exact age is clear. But the zeal with which he draws is unmistakable. He hangs his drawings, mysterious messages filled with religious and political symbols, at various places throughout the clinic. Although he exclusively works alone, he has nothing against his drawings being presented in public. At one of his exhibitions, he declared: “One day, while fishing on the banks of a river I saw a flying saucer. I looked at my fishing rod and then raised my eyes up to the sky again, but the saucer was no longer there. I didn’t find it important.”
