“Drawing and painting has always been part of my life. Plastic and scenic art are two great pillars of my life to understand me, to understand the world and to the need to express myself. For me, artistic expression goes through many branches and each feeds what is needed at the time to be expressed. Painting, drawing, movement, dancing, writing, are those that for now help me live in harmony. I’m currently researching more from improvisational painting, introducing body movement or dance. performance performance, I feel the need to bring art and artistic experience to nature. To feel a connection to life, more real, more harmonious and less predatory, creative practice in nature, for now, is being a great balsam I would like to explore further.”
