You are a visual artist that draws inspiration from every day public life among other subjects. How is your work different from other artists with this interest?
My work is strongly tied to geometry, color, textures, matter and other visual elements which result in a figurative art full of abstract references. Even when I represent city life, I try to convey that with imagination and cultural elements into my mind, in search of a language capable of expressing our times.
To what extend do you think 'place' is important in your work?
Place is important for me. A tide of sight elements occur constantly in my life, and I keep many of them in mind when I paint. Even when I don't feel melancholic about childhood, no doubt those times have a presence in my art, and a visual quest that invades me is present since then. So my art is always biased by 'place'.
What is your best tip for an emerging artist?
Think this: ‘do you have something to say which hasn't been said already?’
