ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a visual artist, originally from Seville and based in London. I am mainly interested in creating artworks that call for the involvement of the viewers. I consider my cultural identity a significant inspiration for my work, as well as my gay identity and everyday observations around London.

For his variety of cultures and artistic movements, Seville is a rich source of gothic and Arab architecture based on geometric forms and baroque paintings and sculptures, which are a rich source of inspiration for me. The human figure of sexy men, abstract creations, and vivid colors are present in my artworks; it allows me to mix seemingly abstract and figurative compositions with sculptural associations.
