I have been an artist for over 12 years, educated in the Martin Tovar and Tovar school, in Barquisimeto Venezuela. I had the privileged to be guided and encouraged by many local artists. I tried different techniques of art, but after my three years of school I began to carry out the process of my personal work as an artist, I start to created what I wanted to express with my personal vision, adding my architectural influence from my second career as an architect. I have been conducting research of color with acrylic structural elements with canvas, making multiple art exhibitions. Also in a solo show, I was a part of an art publication as “the youngest artist”.
My creative process is not limited to having fun creating because my inspiration comes from my own thoughts and conclusions of what I want to convey to me is my lifestyle. I cannot live without my canvas creating new art, and I will keep listening to my thoughts and soul which turn into art.
My most recent work on surrealist portrait allows me to express my vision of the good and evil to what we call life. Life in my bionic vision exists through the creation of a piece in many independent parts, with lines, shapes, colors, stories, drawing and, shades fusing for an irreverent and bold portrait. Having, as a result, the creation of a canvas with spray, paint, pencil, and acrylic.
The inspiration came through an analysis of how we see ourselves after going through the adversities that life puts us, in how we overcome it to be happy again and smile after all. That is the reason for my bionic vision which is building a portrait from several canvas, which represents the colors and harmony in life. Drawing a black background portrait shows my architectural resources, which are a fundamental part of being able to transmit
all mixed feelings like pain, suffering, anger, and how we can overcome them. The portrait will make the observer feel as if the observer was in front of a mirror, touching feelings, making feel emotions, giving to
the observer travel into his past and present remember that we all are a construction of many emotions, feelings, graces, disgraces, tragedies, joy, pride, and others that and the end of the day represents our own canvas in our life.
