Short biography


Barcelona, 1968. Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Sant Jordi School of Fine Arts, University of Barcelona, specializing in Painting. He lives and works in Ciutadella de Menorca, where he is currently in his studio. He regularly collaborates with Iñaki Sampedro, Art & Bags by hand painting unique and exclusive leather bags. Exhibits frequently in France.

His work is inspired by nature, landscape and human geographies and for this reason travel is also a constant source of inspiration. To teach us his inner world he uses both painting, drawing, engraving and illustration. The subject of his pictorial work is usually canvas, but also on paper. He usually uses mixed teniques: acrylic, oil, collage, Indian ink, watercolor, etc.
