Lives and works in Puerto Rico

“I am an artist who focuses in the studies of social-realism and the actual events; wars, consumerism, worldwide politics, and the global environment. I am constantly studying the conditions of social-realism in terms of how it affects us as individuals or as a society and how we react to these issues. My ideas are based on the concepts of re- appropriation, re-interpretation and deconstruction of messages based on Roland Barthes and his analysis of Semiotic.

My work explores the aesthetic and the visual quality created by drawing with Ballpoint pen to present a style that conceive a reference between old illustrations and printmaking, which evokes architectural plans or it was taken by referential books”.
