From the Artist... In general, ever since the beginning of my career, I have been interested in and tackled topics related to philosophy, anthropology, sociology and human psychology, and their relationship with the social and personal environment.
In recent years, I have been focusing on several key elements in the development of my formal proposals. All of these are conceptual strategies associated with the processes of vital re-adaptation, change, and personal/social transformation.
The basis of my artistic creation is the successive investigation of cultural narratives that I adapt according to the needs of my continuous process of external understanding and internal transformation. The main purpose of my work is communication. I am interested in conveying an experience from that which we all share, to establish a dialogue that will allow us to gain awareness, which impels us to transform ourselves and thereby our environment.
