Artist's statement

   Ever since I started painting my guide for this irresolute journey was and always will be the human. Especially in this era that is being plagued by the crisis of values, art seems to be the only channel between the reason and the emotion.  That’s why I am using the colors, the paintbrushes and the canvas. I aim at showing my world, a world full of light, where the human is the center, the key ingredient of our society, a society that imposes roles and masks in order to survive a situation that even thought is seems like a prison, the human has the power of responding and solving the problem like Andre Breton use to say. In a way he will manage to cut the ribbon in this marathon that fate prepared for him. That through the journey to Ithaca he will manage to gaze the most magical sunset through his own storm.
