"For me, the content of the work is very important, linked to aesthetic innovation, or at least a search for originality. This is how I have used painting contests as validation mechanisms for different aesthetics. that the trade, the technical, becomes important The greater your technical heritage, the more possibilities for innovation and at the same time greater discursive power. My work is characterized by the use of gold, linear contours as a representation strategy, prints or prints, which make up bodies or areas as backgrounds. The use of everyday elements to refer to the interaction between the characters in the work or suggest situations in the composition becomes relevant. I am interested in the use of vivid and intense colors, but without neglecting tonal gradients and traditional painting techniques; that provide the volume produced by the contrasts and the gradient.
