About Me

Visual Artist

Biography

Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1982. I obtained a Major Degree in Economics at the USM and worked for several years in the financial sector. However, my passion has always been the drawing, painting, and photography, that's why I made certified Graphic Design studies (Adobe©) to strengthen this passion. I consider myself as a self-taught photographer and plastic artist, looking to learn every day out of the practice. On November 2015, I decided to dedicate myself fully to the plastic and digital arts, being able to participate in collective and individual exhibitions. My work is a fusion between Pop Art and European Posterism of the late twentieth century. My artworks go from the digital illustration to the acrylic on canvas, also applying mixed techniques and using various materials such as paper and resins.

Artist Statement

My work seeks to enhance the link between photography and painting, often echoing a social, cultural and sometimes political background. The world of comics has been a great influence on my works, allowing me to convey a feeling through facial expressions and vivid and vibrant colors. The close relationship of street art and social criticism are part of my influences, which I try to express in some of my works with a critical content of the society and the intrinsic need to show a different point of view that allows identifying the Work with a thought.
