Since my childhood, I have been traveling all my life between USA, Europe and Latin America. My work has an expressionist-symbolist style by using Mythologies from Eastern and Western Civilizations. I use Syncretism to develop patterns that reveals how our current culture opens to its different functions in art to reflect our way of living and our hopes.
