Artist Statement

 

"Driven by an energetic and expressive imagery, I embrace form to visually represent infinity on the plane,

on these works I search for answers about time and absence.  

 

Submerge within geometrical abstraction are scenes in which lines, forms and infinity are slipping in and out

of material existence.

With passionate energy I accelerate the relationship between geometry and reason.

I provide an infusion of self-expression, Ideology and multi-cultural iconography to my work, always aim to connect with the viewer and to share a visual interaction from two different points of view.  

 

Intensity and passion are reflected on my drawings and carvings, always powered by feelings and experiences transforming the elements into a visual and intellectual communication. Sometimes is a desire-driven attempt to represent something of the subject that is well beyond its appearance, Other times, just a deep-rooted lust between the essence, the surface and mi self.

You will find behind the artist a simple soul, a world traveler, a follower of an Art philosophy, a man with  strong attachment to its roots."
