I live and work in Bilbao, a city located on the north of Spain. I work as a painter since 2001, although my work has suffered a great evolution over the last three or four years. My paintings are scenes that I built from photography, drawings and computer manipulations. I work with symbols that I take from literature and cinema. In the last year, I have realized a series of pictures with “the house" as central topic.
The houses that paint are constructions that are located in a natural strange environment, harassed by meteorological unusual phenomena or in desolate places, which reinforce the sensation of isolation and immobility where they are immersed.
Nature is also very important as a topic in the drawings and paintings that I make. As a person that lives in a city, the "natural thing" and I refer to the whole index of animals, plants and natural disasters, is something distant, that is not present around every day, and it has turned into something disconcerting, overwhelming, a myth, and there is nothing more inspiring than that for me.
