Artist Works
Biography: Presentation

I am a visual artist and art director (specialty in graphic design), and pioneer of "Digital Pictorial Art" in Spain. I work as an independent art director and I have more than 25 years of experience in the design and advertising sector.
I make my first series of digital pictorial art between the years 1997 and 2001. I have created more than 350 unique and exclusive works in the last decade. I am interested in studying, relating and interacting classical art and graphic design.
I worked in several graphic design studios and advertising departments, until I created my own company.
At the moment I realize projects of art and design directly for my clients.
I also do assignments and activities that help show my most personal works.

"Digital pictorial art"

It is the term that defines much of my current work and style.
The tool I mainly use is the computer and I create works under a pictorial concept. I use very diverse visual resources with a completely expressive purpose: drawing, photography, photocopying, real objects, web code, screen copies, computer software, obsolete graphic material ... and transform them through spots, collages, fusions, overlays, transparencies, distortions, textures, etc.
My speech starts from the observation of the changes produced by the new information age and continues to develop around the new aesthetic and conceptual opportunities it generates. The construction of my works based on predigital, digital and technological elements completes an X-ray of analogue to digital evolution.
Another aspect that interests me especially is to investigate new concepts: digital recycling, graphic recycling, neo glitch art, etc.
To contextualize this new artistic approach within the current panorama, I think we can locate it between the painting of S.XX and the new trends of art of the XXI century, between painting as an expressive medium par excellence and the new artistic forms of technological environment .
