The artist states about his work: "Being aware that ideas can be changed gives me more impulse to my desire to create alternative worlds. This leads me to build images for demonstrate that 'situations' are simple paradigms with which it is possible to break. I question the capitalist idea of ​​retiring after a long career in search of accumulating fortune. In essence, I relate it to the withdrawal that the Earth exhausted by the exploitation of man would desire, to begin its regeneration. In my paintings, humans are forced to reinterpret their environment to survive in a new post-technological world. "
