The painter takes the windows as the main motif of his artworks offering the most daily vision of the city, in his plastic exercise presents a contemporary and timeless look that runs between the public and the private. He investigates the holistic change of the city. Urban anthropology and the perspectives of urbanism are the elements that lead to a plastic interpretation of the form and spaces of the metropolis.

Gimeno's artworks are an observational practice that allows him to configure an aesthetic-anthropological discourse on social life, speaking of private and architectural spaces. With mixed media personifies facades and windows, exposing themselves to a reflection on their own loneliness and their coexistence with time, these facades look directly at the viewer, leading them towards their own introspection.
