About

My work is an extension of my inner time and space, a tool through which others are able to acknowledge complexity, diversity, Emotion and Motion, Tension, or Harmony by establishing links between the world and mankind’s diversity emerging from the fragility of our world and society.

All my life, for some reason, I traveled and lived between two people, two points, two houses, two cities, or two countries. I´ve been shaped to this fast, unpredictable, and nomad way of living.

As a consequence of this, I became passionate about the commonplace aspects of the life of Humankind and Nature and how these elements communicated with each other and I became fascinated by the flux of movement, speed, and color.

I am passionate about simple moments of the human quotidian and dynamic aspects of the real-life and I am inspired by how these elements communicate and interact with each other, and how human values and mankind’s diversity emerge from the fragility of our world, of our society.
