His multidisciplinary artistic approach focuses on the trust of the body, guided by its inherent energy where images, movements, and emotions appear. Fascinated by the complexity of the human being, his work explores the identity and authenticity of movement through the poetic in absurd, social, emotional, and temporal subjects, materializing it in space and time.
