“Whippet” depicts a simplified yet sophisticated form of the whippet dog.


Reduced to its most basic elements,

the figure of the dog allows for a new perspective on the depicted animal, crossing the boundaries of traditional realism.


Although the painting represents

an animal, it can also be interpreted

as a record of the relationship with humans, human emotions, or states

of admiration. This breed symbolizes tranquility, elegance, or speed.


It is a metaphor for human aspirations, such as the pursuit of freedom, purpose, or refinement.
