It is about resilience, spirituality and human condition; I want to use my work to contaminate urban environments as well as natural places revitalizing them with the simple, potent, language of my characters.
My research,develops through the creation of totemic figures, ex voto, athars, sometimes exorcisms.
I use a short circuit between modern and ancient techniques, spanning between a micro scale to gigantism. I employ different materials such as bronze, iron, sand, volcanic rock, ceramics, paper, plaster, wood, nylon, inflatable PVC, video projections.
