What stands out at first in my work are the colours and the graphics - a precise pencil, colours that appeal. I create a mythology with contemporary animal-headed humanoid silhouettes with dark, enigmatic words to underline the need for research and express internal suffering. My work is a message, with which I deplore the wanderings of my countrymen – (I'm mixed race) - blinded by a pseudo Eldorado, on the way to a promised land of futile crumbs, carried out in boats to the land of rocks and their dreams of completing trinkets, right to the gates of the Spanish enclaves of North Africa, or in the slums of the suburb-squats in big cities. Expressionist baroque painting, mannered and enigmatic images of the human tragedy. The works of a smuggler to restore memory.
