About

My work is a visual confrontation with reality where reduction, accumulation and construction meet with poetry.
In every medium I use, fragments are given a new function to recreate a totality.

Statement

I am a Venezuelan mixed media artist based in Germany.
Two things have shaped my life since I can remember: images and words. I grew up under the influence of pop culture, science fiction books and TV commercials. As a child one of my favourite pastimes was to create imaginary worlds.

In every medium I use, fragments are given a new function to recreate a totality.
I want to reflect a contemporary sense of life with all its metaphysical complexities and contradictions where the impossible is not anymore.
