Art is a space of absolute freedom, where I can express my fascination for color, form and texture.
Space, shape and color are the three elements that make up my work. Space allows me to construct geometric shapes with the use of lines and patterns of repetition at different levels, I have constructed geometric forms and compositions; creating an attractive visual experience for the viewer. Achieving this is my greatest satisfaction.
The geometry, the repetition of patterns, colors and lines, each of these elements is realized with diverse techniques to generate different visual effects that are attractive for 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 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.
