Statement I struggle for the truth that is lived with my art. The truth is sometimes an internal approach aimed to society, and sometimes the expression of the imaginary heroes that I settle up in my fictional imagination. Besides, another element reflecting my work is the instant photographic frames of life. Sometimes I admire the eye-catching lights of a small town, and sometimes I’m captivated by a tiny garbage pail that adds sense to that beautiful place. The real settling up begins when I’m in front of the canvas. I’ve never painted just to paint, and I never do. If I paint, I’ve absolutely a story to tell about life. In this way, my hand and my brush become a united whole and I start to face with canvas with all of my courage. Such that, when I put the last spot, I want the work to be just like a drawing with all of the sentiments I felt.
