“In a constant movement, I make the environment that surrounds me the focus of my inspiration. Through images, its construction and deconstruction, and the reflection about the present, allows me to permanently establish the connection between the past and the future. By transposing and transfiguring images into graphic compositions I follow the labyrinth theory of creation, which is the process of most of his works, crossing lines, strokes and colors till their dematerialization in abstract expressions, reflecting multiple worlds and multiple identities in a constant search.”
