Bio

With my work I aim to portray a feeling, a memory that sparks an emotion when it is con-templated. By using colors, elements, shapes, media or texture I want to create paintings that trigger positive feelings and emotions and celebrate love and life. Among several sources of inspiration an important one comes from the different places I’ve called home and the experiences lived with people I’ve met along the journey of my life. The unique daylight nature offers during the different seasons or when reflected on unfamiliar elements, architecture or landscape as wells as the characteristic scent each city has, all somehow are part of that puzzle of feelings I want to portray as well. In my work, I also try to represent that special feeling of belonging to a new place with a glimpse of nostalgia from the previous one. I like to explore these topics through several recurrent and interrelated subjects. Currently based in Geneva, I am originally from Barcelona. I have also called home Atlanta, Zürich, Winchester (UK), Singapore and Tokyo.
