Chuli Herrera focuses on social relationships and the benefits of new technologies in the age of social media. In recent years, his work has been marked by the constant relationship of images subordinated to the emotions and internal and external situations that human beings constantly experience. In this work, Chuli Herrera criticizes the ego of our contemporary societies. He puts masks on his portraits, like the ones we have when we post selfies on social networks, highlighting a life that is always more perfect than reality. He named this series "Zelf Portret" (in Dutch), because he presents on a portable self-portraits of great masters like Rembrandt or Van Gogh.
