He is a visual artist that would like to submit a series of drawings entitled “Studio Corners”, about the emptiness of the studio and its work. The images have the size of the drawings on the file name.
His work is concerned with material and formal explorations through different mediums, which culminates in an interdisciplinary approach. On my artistic process, he starts from analyzing and deconstructing specific thematics, embracing a responsive practice. Independently of the primordial intention and then the result or outcome of the process, he likes the fact that materials and objects can produce their own discourse and are open to multiple interpretations through the narrative which emerges through every encounter.
