See in original language

I am an artist born in Madrid, Spain. I firmly believe in work, not inspiration. By assembling and connecting objects, images or materials into unexpected ways they radiate and evoke their own essence, but also contaminate their neighbors. Though I love working in all kinds of media, I have had an especially long personal exploration of calligraphic inks and paper, in some ways the deepest, most original and primitive medium. I am also a constructor with a love of tools, leading to a long series of small sculptures, hand-made boxes, books and many other unusual objects.

Common to it all is a pretty elaborate but precise & consistent iconography, its symbology rooted in nature. Always water, air, earth, fire, salt and sun; the life that is created by these and who itself creates through these.
