about the artist's works

He manages shapes, volumes and light sources with ease, simply and elegantly, mixing them with mastery and providing a new vision of lighting, combining in his pieces the emotional, the functional, the sustainable and the progress in his continuous research. His sculptures are constructed from very simple forms. Materials such as the Japanese cord, steel or wood mesh project the strength of the human being, his vital energy and his ability to break through as an individual or as a group. His work brings together technology, science and art, light and its shadows being a constant and fundamental study in each piece.
