Been producing art since 1999: exploring various themes such as sexuality, spirituality, our relationship with nature and death. All this time the aim has been to display sensorial matters, a gut feeling, or the way the human race feels at the dawn of a new century. For that reason he believes collages function as a true carrier of these matters, the medium itself represents a clash, a juxtaposition. He has been producing collages on paper for various reasons: paper represents ancient cultures and for centuries now the triumph of our civilization, it is also a practical and simple material that enables the creation of images whilst more importantly consolidating time and space as a unique physical document. He has collect and recycle materials because these practices speak about the saturation and overconsumption representative of our times, all this paper and plastic will then shape figures and images that attempt to materialise this overload, the homogenisation and convergence of world trends and the complexity of our emerging status as internet mutants. Most recent works are sculptures made from recycled plastic and are inspired by everyday people; the next step is to giving the sculptures mechanised, robotic skeletons.
