You have come this far. Surely we agree on a lot of details.
Digital tools allow you to recreate what you have inside, maybe you didn’t even know and translate it into a picture or video. It is a matter of practice, like almost everything.
I use bright colors, fonts, and shapes that remind me of many elements that surround us, both in nature and on the streets. And that usually goes unnoticed. I combine them with organic expressions to play with the contrast between the senses and what the passage of time means reflected in fragments of graffiti, a damp stain, or a rusty fence.
My proposal is to capture intense moments of emotion that I lived or daydreamed, to recreate them in a graphic way and introduce you through a sensitive composition. My works try to seduce you, just like what happens when a DJ plays that song that makes you dance and not stop.
