LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I was born in Sitges in 1966, a town south of the city of Barcelona, by the sea. The light of this place has marked me deeply when it comes to creating my imagination.
From very small I have felt the need to express myself through painting and drawing.
I studied at Facultat de Belles Arts of University of Barcelona.
I understand painting as a necessity. It’s part of my way of seeing the world and communicating with others. I look for the lyric poetry who are in the visual art. My works born from experiences, often sensory, of memories and imaginary spaces, always empty, full of loneliness.
My creative process starts with look at the innerself, my experiences and my landscapes. Often paintings and drawings are united by the memories of childhood, trips, summers, winters, smells, flavors and of the place where I have grown and lives landscape.
They are figurative works, where color and stain build the theme. I am also interested in the subtlety of texture, the line and calligraphy as a tool of plastic language above the subject. Each drawing incorporates written and integrated words in the composition. Words in my language with names related to the concept that each drawing explains. Words that I like how they sound or how they are written.
Many drawings and paintings belong to series. They have their own entity but they also depend on each other.I like to express myself, connect, communicate and also search inside to share. Emotions, sensations, feelings and my inner world are the sources of inspiration for my pictorial work.
