ARTIST STATEMENT

ARTIST STATEMENT

My artwork is a handbook of suggestions to celebrate humanity, and invite you to immerse in an ideal world full of happiness, positivism, spirituality, and love. They are pieces full of vibrant colors, textures and elements of everyday life, which are meant to stir emotions and thoughts. My work is a bit of naive and yet profound, with a touch of irony and humor. I don’t pretend to dictate the ultimate truth, but to insinuate ideas that may help improve the wellbeing of the viewer. My goal is to motivate and propose a purpose-driven life, to help make this world better. I like to dream, and dream big. Who can live without dreaming? Who can exist without meaning? As an artist, I want to tell a story and inspire. These are not mere decoration pieces, but works from the heart meant to make you reflect on your reality. I invite you to take a look and be surprised.

My pieces are full of exciting colors with textures and subtle messages that enrich their content. I look at the nostalgia of the past recognizing its importance, not thinking that it was always better, but using it as a reminder to improve our future. As an artist, I feel the obligation and mission of using my talent to improve the life of those who see my work, by transmitting a message of life, love and positivism.
Art should be a tool used to improve the world and not contribute with it to its downfall.

My Current Collections:

  • “Talking About Love” is a colorful collection of abstract pieces with showers of love. It is romantic and conveys the different ways of showing love and devotion to those who surround us and ultimately, God. Its message is an invitation to let go and communicate everything that is hidden deep in the spirit. It is a suggestion to not fear, but to have the courage to show feelings, without prejudice and restraints.
  • “Reality Bites” is filled with love, and even a touch of mystery. I use symbols that express reality and fantasy, which come together to tell a story of human nature, of our perfection and of course, our imperfection. I contemplate social and cultural issues to show them in a new light, with a bit of sarcasm, humor, and even criticism to spark a flame in the soul and open hearts and minds.
