THE ARTIST´S STATEMENT

"...My Art is generated in a magical moment of "communion" between my self and my knowledge on topics related to the Astronomy Science, Astrophysics, Cosmology and Quantum Physics. You should also understand my profound admiration and fascination to the civilization of Ancient Egypt, it is the inspiring muse in my first series. My characteristic saturated colors and my logic pragmatism, which is often painted with geometric figures and symbols, leads me to the abstraction... This is where I mainly find the most appropriate vehicle to leave embodied my message… We tried to express on the canvas the wonders of the universe with the only message that we are sons of the stars, where we come from and where surely we will return some day..."
