By mean of his works, the artist wants to lightly introduce us in a indeed personal poetic World. He renders in an ironic way, through techniques like oil on canvas, acrylics, pencil drawing, watercolors and Indian ink drawing, subjects and patterns which become thoughts and free links' boxes; all of this following the everlasting strand of the historical Surrealism, brought to this day and age thanks to the use of ironic subjects, sometimes with sharp and polished humor. His world seems without geographical or historical borderlines, in a just shuffled and striking reality.
