My path has taken me from my hometown of Caracas, Venezuela to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where I opened Art Expressions Gallery in 2002.
Attempting to share my commitment to a greener planet, recycling and reuse are an ongoing theme in my works. In addition to running a gallery for almost eight years, I also dedicated myself to exploring the parameters of pop art. My art reflects an expressive emotional response to my present being and a projection of the future. As a creator of art, I manipulate and incorporate soda cans and apply the colored pigment onto the surface out of a necessity to transfer an internal emotion into an external form. Color, shapes and textures are my language. They speak to me. I lay pieces of cans down in a dance with the surface and watch it take shape and form in its own time. The objective is to use the metal as an agent to define formation, shape and line as an expression of today and the anticipated tomorrow.
