Printmaking is a tool of foundation of my body of work, and it became the main medium of interest of my personal artistic practice. My fine art background brought me for this reason to explore and find inspiration on its fusion with other disciplines.
Since I started printmaking my passion and obsession for technical processing, hooked me in the experimentation on the different printmaking methods and techniques and encouraged me to combine these new skills with my artistic skills in all levels, mediums and disciplines, technically and conceptually, creating a broader expansion of my artistic practice and whole research.
My work brings audiences through the techniques of lithography to Japanese mokulito and different forms of artist books, book installations and ceramics. There is deep analysis of the human condition and limits of reality; an influence that come for my passion for surrealism and philosophy, topics based of my work which continue to surprise the viewer and transport him to the hidden world of the human subconscious.
I'm a professional Spanish artist who has studied Fine Arts in the University of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia, Spain and performed a Printmaking MA at Eugeniusz Gepper Academy of Fine Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland.
