About the artist

At the time of elaborating my work, my maximum pretension is to approach it from the pleasure of painting, generating a dialogue with my daily experiences and my environment. I maintain a close relationship between the people around me and the spaces in which I move, thus reflecting a daily life that gives character to my work. I explore the human condition, without framing the person represented in the social context, but I try to show the viewer the person portrayed without any additives. I emphasize what I want to reflect through the tool of painting; the innate psychology and character of each of the protagonists”.
