Surronded by paint in the family studio with my granfather, ever since I was small, I watched pictures be created, canvases and colors made ready, exhibitions…and long conversations about painters and their works. And above all that smell, that smell of oil and turpentine, that gets in your blood and makes you paint. And there is no going back.
My training as an artist, very marked by the figures of painters-Velazquez,Picasso, Klee- more than by styles or trends, explains part of my work. The serie Meninas inspired by Velazquez are really an exaltation of woman and nature, mother earth, as origin of life. The Harlequins are the ambigous duality of the human condition ofthe artist himself.
