Statement

Being a graphic designer by profession, I took the tools design gave me, to channel it directly into the visual arts (painting). Now, I’m a full time artist.

My focus is to show the contrast between the animal and the human world. My art, always figurative, manifests a marked environmental posture trying to harness the power of visual arts to create awareness among people about our role on the planet and how we interact within it with other species. To create scenarios where human error against nature is often manifested. I have the strong conviction, I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone, that we are at a crucial moment as a specie in relation to how we have been treating our environment, and is not exactly positive. As an artist, I must make every effort to try to raise awareness by delivering a direct message about what is happening and what must change.
