After studying Illustration in Palma de Mallorca, Spain and Oriol Angrill Jordà he increased his skills doing a course of printmaking in London, UK. During his studing period of Illustration, he tried a hugh variety of techincs like pastel, watercolours, colored pencil, white pencil on black canson paper, acrylics, graphite, charcoal and so on. Whatever he used, he easily found the way to reach the realism. His most identificative skill is that, whatever he use is able to produce an hiper realistic picture. “I just like to draw things that happens in real life, I’m tired to visit contemporary art galleries or museums, all I find there it’s just like visiting primary schools on a parent’s day. They try to express themselfs in a random or painting fade throwed on a canvas or sticked trash into a litter. All it is shown is valid and allowed.” (cf. artist’s bio) Please visit his website or his Tumblr getinwolved for more works.

Elle, c’est celle qui de ses soins, a nourri l’attention
