He was born in Caracas, Venezuela, self-taught education; he is interested in geometric experiments in the field of optical kinetic investigation. His work has been developed in three-dimensional creations that meet light, movement and space, where color plays an important role. My goal is to create a perception game where the viewer can interact directly with the painting.

He was born in Caracas in 1961. From an early age he felt a desire to express themselves through drawing and painting. However, having not sufficient financial resources he kept it as a pending task, until the mid- 90s began to develop an interest in art, through extensive research of the works about the great masters of painting, optical geometric trend basically.
Moreover based on the geometric abstraction he started making spontaneous paintings with the freedom to choose and combine his palette. The desire of the artist consist in creating and innovating in each sample, being free to interpret his visions, colors, lights and forms, transforming the space he develops.
His plastic has been defined under a constructive approach, gathering techniques that emphasize textures, a diversity of building materials and reinforce the interaction of colors towards a relentless pursuit of the idea. In this sense the expression has no limits, because despite the obstacles, this profession has allowed him to achieve a balance where the positive prevails.
His preparation has allowed diversity and creation; he keeps a kinetic optical discourse, where the shape and color take a dominant role in the composition. This implies a systematic and rational work of strong visual impact. These paintings don’t seek to express an eventual plot, but the viewer would interpret the content in a different way. Under this latest trend the artist has developed a work with double set of perception, movement and vibration of the composition.
Furthermore his work has developed with a contemporary approach, influenced by the design and architecture. The passion and the effort is his source of inspiration, under that instinct can imagine the impossible, make it a reality and transform the space. He has special attention to details, being diligent and patient and organizing color areas, where perception and imagination reconstruct reality in a positive and constructive manner.
The artist believes that color is a subjective experience that depends on three key factors: light, object and observer. Looking in his compositions the viewer is attracted with great force by that energy. He believes that art can come into contact with other consciousness using different media and materials, creating optical illusions like motion.
