He is working in the interdisciplinary space of visual art, music, science, education and social practice through an ecological perspective. As an artist, he uses natural materials, phenomena and forms in a way that allow him to attach new poetic symbolism and significance to the processes of matter, presenting the land itself as an essential source of art, life and knowledge. His main objective is to take risks and embrace challenges, and to propose new ways of reconsidering our relationship with nature; To develop creative proposals that, in form and content, propose an alternative, symbolic and practical way to co-work with the environment.
