His painting has evolved towards a magical-symbolic surrealism, without which we can affirm that his works are clearly surrealist. “Emanates his stylistics of a net and personal interpretation and interrelation of the surreal and the symbolic where the subconscious and oneiric, the fantastic and psychic, the irrational and magical remain exalted.

Self-taught and independent, in the broadest sense of the word. His painting has gone and continues to discover new themes, ideas, techniques and materials. Think that any element can become part of a plastic creation.
The title of this exhibition: “Fragments of reality in dream” reflects the idea that every painting does not stop being a fragment composed of real or dreamed biases. For a creator, the reality with which he lives every day is merged with dream, imagination and fantasy without limits, trapping him.
The look always alert around him; shapes, colors, harmony, imbalance, … measure, compare, abstract, create. First of all, look for the beauty, the emotion of the work, natural or created by the hand of man, ancient or modern, which is offered to the five senses and captures its essence projecting it on a tangible surface. Investigate, elaborate, discover, play … with disparate materials, sometimes surprising, giving them a purpose for which they never dreamed of being created.
