Artist Statement

I paint what I like and that comes from the ocean, my painting is abstract and feeds my Marines visions. Since my childhood I grew up at the seaside in a marine universe, then I became a surfer exploring the coast and waves, contemplating the sea sit on my surfboard. All those years of experience have shaped a vast world of images and sensations that constantly feed my painting. This is an immersive and contemplative painting that leads to meditation. My painting is identical to the vision of a person contemplating the vastness of the ocean. It is an internal experience that begins in this immersion look.
