Is the world something strange, oblivious to all my emotions? An alien is a foreign person, strange or excluded. In popular culture, it’s the inhabitant of another planet. Tesa Arranz, a key figure of the Movida Madrileña and the singer with the group Zombies, has painted five hundred portraits of aliens from outer space in the last decade.
