Artist statement

“I create eye-catching artwork, which expresses joy and positive energy. With the juxtaposition of various shapes in bright colors and richly textured surfaces, I create a unique effect that gives me unlimited possibilities for exploring. I project the impressions left in my memory by various emotional experiences. I see my work not only as a piece of art, but also as a visual approach to language and cultural expression. My paintings are a constant change of forms, an expression of moments in time transposed in colors, forms and shapes, that result in an intriguing expression of my love and passion for what I do.”
These four pieces are part of a collection of paintings that follow the same creative style that consists of a ludic line that travels eerily all over the canvas, starting and ending at the same point, while creating spaces of color that connect to form a vivid composition filled with vibration and rhythm that give balance through contrast or harmony. It allows the viewer to give free rein to their imagination and interpret in their own way.”
