Madrid 1978

I understand drawing and painting as fast, almost frantic action that tries to portray the movement and energy of the characters. This process could be described as an expressionist battle that uses sarcasm as its main weapon.

"Things to do in Fangorn when you're dead" is the title of my latest project, a maneuver of contrapositions that combines the harshness of situations with naive landscapes and bright colors. A tribute to the grotesque through figures that evoke childhood in a distorted way. A manipulation that shows us that there is a very fine line that separates the naive from the wild, and that venerates, above all, the art of representing the lowest instincts hidden in their contrasts, candor, religion and violence.
