He discovered painting through photography, at the end of the nineties he began to carry out photographic essays, from the beginning the deformation of the figurative centers his interest.
At the beginning of the millennium he began to paint his first pictures in Barcelona and was fascinated by the expressive freedom of painting. At the same time, he hangs his works in the streets of Barcelona in poster format, shares walls with other urban expressions and soon discovers himself in mural art.
For years the mural took up practically all his time, forming a work that gave him the opportunity to travel through different countries and cities and develop a very personal style of communicating through colors and shapes.
