About my work, I would say, it follows the philosophy of the absurd, it means, using the principles of reason to create ridiculous concepts. I see contradiction as an ally that provides energy to my art. I like to develop the rules of games that allow an interaction between the spectator and the piece. A sort of provocation that tests the spectator's perception and tries to produce an effect in those who take part in it.
Normally people see no conexion or linearity in my work because I don’t determine my style using the same technique, same subjects, same materials, etc. I feel free of expressing myself thought several ways, actually, I would call myself a copycat artist. One of the characteristics of a copycat is the ability to absorb and appropriate different styles or aesthetics, catching the line of designs and reproducing their form in a convincing way in order to make a satirical version. I don't know, maybe it’s just my way to colonize the reality.
