" I consider myself passionate about form and color , capturing my thoughts is what  defines my creative process. Nature and experiences in our environment are the models I use to create my pictorial work. I identify with the inherited symbology, and I find beauty in it. I think that the pigments are a nuance that already exists in nature, and that I only merge with the canvas or with the mural to capture moments that ask me to come out from within. I have defined a line of composition based on modeling, because I believe that it is the essence to project every detail in a mural. One of the processes that I consider fundamental is “Structuring”, as it gives life to the mural and allows the viewer to subtly travel within our thoughts”
