He studied graphic design but doesn’t have a particular affection towards “institutions”.

His aesthetics are inspired by the Pop-Art, minimalism, Russian constructivism, and neoplasticism. Through his work, the artist seeks to open a discussion that goes from the social problems to the poetry of the habitat in which he creates.

His works are composed through basic geometry and abstraction, and influenced by architecture, climate, and the current socio-political situations.
