Statement: My work translates into experience accumulated by my path through different disciplines related to the art. I am in love with the dance, music, and architecture. I am daring and accept the challenges of the moment with passion and commitment. Today I propose my aesthetic speech on the contemporary material ‘ The Material of the Millennium “PVC” As an expression support of our consumeristic Era of Black Gold (oil). Material that puts us at an exclusive time in the history of mankind with which I intend to transform and communicate the cadence of the dance, musical lyrics, and the imposing structure of architecture.
My sculptures are undoubtedly marked by the monumental character that they hold, as a trait that defines and identifies it.
