I am a mixed-media visual artist, originally from Seville and based in London. My practice is about perception, form and colour: visual and conceptual. I explore through my paintings how mindfulness as a natural quality touches our sense in our collective and popular territory.

As an artist I am mainly interested in creating works that call for the participation of the viewers. I consider my cultural identity from Southern Spain, as a significant inspiration for my work as well as my observations and experiences from being a Londoner. My work has also been influenced by such as Willem de kooning and Joan Mitchell.

I started studying Fine Art in Seville in the late 80’s the School of applied arts and visual arts. For his variety of cultures and artistic movements, and history, Seville is a rich source in gothic and Arab architecture and baroque paintings and sculptures which were a rich source of inspiration for me.

I moved to London in 2000 with the new millennium, I studied Sculpture at the Camberwell College of Arts, obtaining a BA in 2012. Since then, my work has been shown in many Group exhibitions around London including: The Espacio Gallery (Flesh, 2015), The Menier Gallery (Beyond Margins, 2015), The OXO Tower (Tribe 17 at the Bargehouse, 2017) and The Tower Bridge Engine Rooms (The Art Bridge #8, 2018).

I have had three successful Solo Exhibitions in London. My latest solo exhibition was travelling through art spaces and art galleries in Valencia (Spain) for 6 months until March 2019.
