Movement, changes and collaborative process

His work is based on his own experience within the natural environment, where he spends most of his time. Passionate about the mountains and about nature, he does not understand a society far from it.


In his figurative and minimalist work, he mixes natural and human elements to speak metaphorically about our relationships, our feelings and our instincts.
He understands urban art as a tool for positive change and social cohesion. As an artist, he feels totally responsible for his work, both for the space where he works and for the people who inhabit it and the environment that surrounds it.
Always looking for the creative process to involve both the community and the viewer.
