Art is a space of absolute freedom, where I can express my fascination for color and the geometry.

Space, shape and color are the three elements that make up my work.

I have been working with the unlimited richness of geometry,which investigate with its multiple possibilities,composition,proportion, color and volumen.

The use of color, and repetitive lines and patterns at different levels are elements distinctive of my work, which allow me to generate different visual effects that are attractive to the human eye.

I mainly use bright colors because they represent happiness, especially my use of bright reds, blues, oranges and greens that often reflect the tropical country where I was born and raised.

My process often involves digital media and the skills I have developed throughout my training in architecture.

Art allows me to express my passion for color and geometry. Venezuelan artists like Jesús Soto, Carlos Cruz Diez and Víctor Varela,also Victor Vasarely,Julio Le Parc and Yaacov Agam  have had a profound impact on my artistic vision, as well as my architectural education; which determine the concept of my designs. Having such a versatile background has allowed me to develop a wide variety of artistic and architectural projects to adapt to different environments without altering the essence of the piece of art, in which I always try to convey a message of love and peace. My portfolio includes a variety of artistic expression, sculptures for indoor and outdoor spaces, acrylic paintings and digital art.
