Born in Colombia, where I experience a natural way of living appreciating the environment the things around me.The tropical colors, the culture, the way of living, the carnival, the Caribbean life-style and other influences around me, the tropical colors, the oceans, the music, the dance, the jungle, the mountains and much more, the happy life. This influences you can see them in my art, in my work, for example in my colors, the study of colors the green, the red, the orange, the blue, yellow, brown. We see them, touch them and some times eat them, those colors we see them in nature in many fruits and plants, animals, etc. Traditionally some artist get inspire painting fruits and objects on a canvas, because of the colors which today they called still –life paintings. But now we live in modern times, things have change now to the point where the artist have to challenge himself with new techniques and and ideas. I have done some still – life, but I created my own still – life paintings which I call them = bodegones. Some of this paintings are very simple I only incorporate a few elements and focus more in the main object, which is the main idea that I simply called, simply art.

The bodegones also connects with my interior landscapes. Here I use more space to create another space of tranquility where all you feel is peace. I like to work with a technique where the colors have to be totally clean and uniform is a very tedious work. The ideas of this paintings come from my experience of working for a long time of perfectionism for this kind of work, it wasn't easy but with the help of my professors I was able to get ahead with this kind of style. It can be call anything people named some called hyperrealism, superrealism, surrealism, realism. I let my paintings talk for themselves, art has its own language the spectator is the one who interpreted the art its own way. my Intention was just to make a painting and make it the best I could. The scenery in my paintings come from real events like in my son's wedding the champagne glass. In my paintings, every picture tell the story.
