Most of my childhood memories are associated to painting, even during my adolescence I continued to go regularly to painting classes. I started my artistic studies at a very young age attending to classical drawing classes.
I expand my knowledge during my artistic formation at LABORAL univeristy in my hometown Gijón. Learning about other classical art techniques like photography laboratory development, sculpture or art history . Im graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Cuenca, Spain. I went there inspired by the National Museum of Abstract Art, and I completed my training passing through the Academy of Brera in Milan, Italy. During all these years I have exhibited in galleries and fairs nationally and internationally and art critics, and cultural personalities from Spain like Rafael Doctor, Tania Pardo or Armando Montesinos have written about my work.After that I passed last 5 years working as a creative director for fashion, I also worked as a freelance photographer & an as a designer, during this time i have been able to travel all over the world and its been the best education I had this 30 years, so I think now is the time to be back painting at my new studio and come with new works soon.
