Artist Statement

 

I am a self-taught painter passionate about intense colors, mostly blues. I am currently based in Barcelona and have Latin American roots which have influenced my colorful paintings.  I have been painting for over 8 years and I started to show my artworks in 2019. I work with oil or acrylic and prefer transparent colors to get as much intensity and variety of colors as possible.  I use brushes, palette knives, my fingers, hands or anything that can provide a wide variety of textures in the creation process. 

I usually do not plan the subject of my artworks and let creativity flow by itself. Discover what I am painting is part of the process. Sometimes I get inspiration from a dream or a brief vision but I never know how it is going to be the ending result. I feel I have endless creativity when I do not think too much. I do not use my thoughts just follow my instincts and what I feel in the present moment.  My artworks resulting from this process are usually abstractions of the universe and nature. I focus more on its essence and presence than in the form. The art I create reflects life around us beyond the form or what we see. It is all about the connection we have with nature, wildlife and appreciation of its PRESENCE.
