Statement : 

In my evolution as a creator, my approaches are always linked with my philosophical development and my islander condition.

Bearer of a critical culture, considering on the socio political reality, I use semantic powers of art to create works whose impact goes beyond the local context.

Space and time allow to think about change and continuity. They are the references by which we order our experience, meaning that, if you stop them, things will be transformed. It would be an absolute confrontation with the truth, with the exact moment, with the details of journey and the reason of the act itself. It is the right time when we circulate, the spectator and I, meeting each other and hypothetically making the dialogue.

I believe in the versatility of the artist and his power to point and transform, influencing any field, system, structure and generating changes.
