Statment

I see art as a necessary and essential part of every culture, every society, every person; a scream to a social awakening, a powerful gas seeking for a spark to explode, to clean and illuminate the social. Art is, neither more nor less, our massive evolution channel. This concept implies the strong conviction that, the art, ends in the observer, who seeks to clarify that spark as the artist has thought or work out a new point of view.

The introspection and the social feedback are the sources of my works that tends to provoke a reaction in the viewer, trying to convert that reaction to critical reflection, a dialog that have as cornerstone the unconscious, deep emotions and a critical view of the results of the action / inaction.

I focus my expression on the character and strength of the brushstroke, the direct transmission of concept from the body and mind to the canvas. Normally, before a concept is transformed into artwork I strengthen the idea writing essays, working the process as study sketches. This creates and maintains a continuous artistic circle.
