CUBA

I lived in Havana for 10 years, and my work was deeply influenced by the simplicity of the people, their daily life and the light of the city. I print some of my works on steel. This material plays with the light, depending on the amount, direction and angles. I also like to print on canvas, its texture provides a painting-like look to the photograph.

MIAMI

In 2008 I arrived in Miami where I was inspired by the colors and light, always on simple elements. This is when I noticed Miami Beach huts. I present this work mixing individual beach huts images, printed on paper and using other two medias, wood (bamboo) and resin, to make some joyful and simple beach huts compositions.

For two years I have been working in a documentary project in Miami where I explored the world of spirituality through different religions with their expressions of devotion, passion and surrender. I print this black and white artwork on fine art cotton paper.

My recent projects are about nature, simplicity, silence. I print in different Japanese papers and sometimes I combine it with encaustic medium (mixture of bee wax and dammar resin). Sometimes I use iron and wood.

My artwork has received the attention of private art collectors and art funds and has been published in magazines and were objects of radio and TV reports. I have exhibited my work in Madrid, La Habana, México, New York and Miami.
