Bio

I was born in 1982 in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I got my degree as an Architect in 2007, at the National University of La Plata.
From 2006 to 2015 I worked in different activities related to the
architecture and interior design, for different companies. In 2015, I founded my own furniture design company.
Then I started painting, working on a subject that always interested me: urbanism and the vision of the subject within large cities.

About my work

I am particularly interested in the exploration of the urban. I seek to capture the constitutive elements of cities (buildings, cars, streets, lights), and propose a NEW MORPHOLOGY based on them.
A rupture with the real and true image of each place reflects its essence through an ABSTRAC-TION, where nothing is defined. This lack of definition is closely linked to the MOVEMENT of ci-ties. The atmosphere is noisy and dynamic; time accelerates and the excess of concrete relays a cold and dehumanized feeling.
I aspire to represent these anonymous spaces of transit, from an urbanistic and pedestrian-centered perspective. I aim to demonstrate the CONTRADICTORY SENSATIONS of the viewer, which sway between a sense of belonging to that dynamic world and the emptiness of this dehumanized atmosphere.
