As a young visual artist, he has found inspiration in renowned architects and artists such as Pedro Friedeberg, Mathías Goeritz, Erté and Escher from whom he has enriched himself to define his own style, exploring geometry and architectural language

 

In his creative work, he is in a constant exploration of artistic interactions, of which his ability to draw architecturally "by hand" stands out, applying analogous processes with great genius, in the old school way.

 

With this, he manages to give his works a seal of originality in the invoice of each piece and provides a substantial quality to the way in which he conceives his art.
