I am an artist and an architect. My work is focused on cities and the urban universe, an old passion, that lead me to study architecture and urbanism. Along my graduation years, I started to give form to my artistic expression, while expanding my architectural mind , but gradually, the artistic activity became more and more important, so eventually I landed in the arts for a full time experience. My work uses the re-treatment of images, mixing paintings, photographs and digital, in a process that starts with brush and paint and ends with scanning and digital collage. As a result of this experience with a diversity of techniques, I develop a constuction work, using different elements, reflecting the complex processes of construction of the city itself, the contemporary babel in which we are imerse.

I also like to work in small sizes, to experiment and discover with graphics and colors, so, I use my artmoney production as part of my working process.
