“…I represent through bursts and auras, the emotions from a search for self-discovery in the various moods of emotionality and thoughts within picturesque, playful and surreal contexts, where human figures and natural or everyday elements in an allegorical and cartographic way seek to narrate a story. It is in this way that the series that defines my work Presences / essences was born, a work in which color plays a symbolic and conceptual role accompanying the representations to evoke feelings and sensations…”

About the practice
The art pieces you are looking at are unique and there are no reproductions.
In each work that I carry out, without distinction of supports or dimensions, I give 100 percent of my heart and my technical skills acquired over the years of dedication in this profession, with the impetus to obtain a unique piece, with all the deserving artistic materiality. I do each artwork in long periods of intervention time, with the emotion of letting it speak to me and tell me: what colors, techniques or composition it needs to feel liberated from my thoughts and execution, in order to belong to the interpretation. visual of another person.
There are many techniques applied to each work, such as drawing, painting, screen printing, and spray, with various moments of execution of each one of them to emphasize and repower the composition, with the interest of seeing a work that is delivered and speaks for itself.
