Cochabamba, Bolivia


I use Art as a way to express my perception of human nature. Breaking through the layers of social hypocrisy usually drives me to encounter a hidden sadness and loneliness that remain inside every individual.

Somehow, I feel pulled by the need to explore human emotion. I’m not afraid of showing darkness and contradiction. I feel empathy and a deep connection with the ones left behind, the foreigners and the outcasts.

Formally, my works are very different from one series to the next. I use many different techniques and I always like to try new things.
