The creation process is for me, the result of a need to understand the world to reinterpret it. The artistic fact should raise questions; shake up consciences, awaken emotions in the receiver. Every work, in this sense has to be a vehicle to communicate not only a mere aesthetic or technical exercise.

In the seek for a message, my painting style has been impregnated by a strong narrative and symbolic elements. In the visual concept, drawing is the architecture of the whole work, what holds the image from the ground. I don’t start any project on the ultimate paper or canvas until the outline and palette are firmly established. In terms of technique, I like the versatility and strength of acrylics to achieve any effect, as well as its quick performing. However, I find a greater expression mixing materials. Recently I have incorporated collage, watercolor pencil and ink over the acrylic base.

I like thinking of the idea that an author is just an interpreter of concepts and characters floating around us, to transfer their stories and feelings to a piece of art. The loneliness, the comradeship, the infinite power of imagination or the social report are some of my recurring subjects.
