I understand art as a way of direct and pure communication.

I have been exploring human nature and its weaknesses within the world we live in since 2008.
Dreads, anguishes, anxieties, and everything which conditions us as mortal beings we are.
I am concerned in how societies relate with technology and how this technology establishes
different levels of communication.

My work is essentially surrealistic, as a result of my study of Salvador Dali´s work.

In my compositions, the characters are usually surrounded by dense and uncomfortable environments,
in which contrasts of light and shadows and chromatic contrasts predominate, the former and the latter
as a result of the huge influence that Michelangelo Buonarotti and Caravaggio´s creations have had in my work.

My speech has to be faithfully and accurately expressed, that is my main goal when I create.
That is why I am not particularly worried about the representation of beauty in itself if it is not part
of a specific meaning.
