Personal information

Born in 1964 in Brussels.

Postgraduate in 2000 by the Escola d’Art d’Olot, he started his artistic career as a sculptor and painter. All his work is tied to the idea of the human being, its future and relation with the environment that surrounds it. Ten years of work as an agriculture engineer in diverse developing countries of Africa and America impregnate his artwork with both an overwhelming globality and existentialism.

Nowadays, he lives in Catalonia with his wife and two children.
