STATEMENT

It motivates me to discover that every reality, no matter how small it may seem, contains in itself a universe of details that are part of a universal gear. This catharsis leads to a reflective painting of social themes, emphasizing the customs, the context of the places and the protagonists with a certain dose of humor and magical-spiritual allusions.
