Beyond the Beauty and intricacy of Geometry and chaos. The City is a character in my work. Wich I try to represent the city as a complex being. Showing its essence and personality in its different moods.
The city is peaceful and frightening at the same time.
The first Tree I worked on came to me in a dream, I didn't dream of the tree, I dreamt the drawing of a tree, and I remembered the details clearly. It was easy as it was something I had done myself in the first place, I think at this point I started to pay more attention to the details and started to think I was in a dream. As soon as I woke up I started working and didn't take a brake until it was done.
I have heard other artists work from their dreams, specially the surrealists but for me it had never happened and I have tried incorporating my dreams more into my work and have also explored the subject of Trees in other styles and concepts. Here is a selection of them. The last Tree black and white drawing is the piece I dreamt of.

This mural was done for my good friend who I will call Bri. She is a very talented D.J. and i know she loves Science Fiction and Nature. This piece was realized in her room so I wanted to create a peaceful world where her imagination could wonder into the horizon.
A term used by many to describe figurative work with a background or decontextualized character from popular culture in order to make a statement or express an emotion using these recognizable images.
I have always been fascinated by buildings, The city is full of magical places. Some easier to see than others; Some striking, some subtle.
There is history and life marked on the walls of these concrete mammoths.They hold the memories of generations past; As old ideologies shape our new world, while few can recognize in them, the personalities and hidden messages of their creators, we are all affected by them, as they create our environment.
We have created them. Yet now, we live in their world.
