Looking at the bulls
Oil on canvas   81cm X 138cm    2003

I was born in Barcelona in 1965. I studied Art, Glass and Ceramics at the college of Bellas Artes in Barcelona. I have participated in several group exhibitions in Spain.

In 1992 I moved to Castell¨®n, Spain. There I took private lesson from an important Cuban artist named Amauri Suarez. This was very important for me because the art vision that Cuban artists have are quite different from the Spanish ones. I learned several special techniques with him.

Since 2007 I live in Shanghai .In China I have participated in "her presence in colors, Beijing 2008". When I arrived in Shanghai, I was suddenly interested in Chinese ink, since I had never used it before. From my first contact with chinese inks and bamboo made papers, I knew that I would end up always painting with these materials. I love seeing how the inks flow through the paper freely. I can only control them to a certain degree, and they lone do the rest, until they finally dry up. 

I like the unexpected, imperfection in itself, the beauty as such, improvisation.
