Artist & Illustrator 

Born in Palma de Mallorca (Spain) and based in London

My work centres around scenes celebrating architecture, industrial structures and the diversity of the human landscape present in the city space. I love photography and I often carry my camera around to steal images of people in the metropolis that I later blend in my artwork. Using a combination of drawing, paint, digital collage and street-photography, II create imaginary cityscapes that take the form of large-scale originals, screen-prints and 3D installation pieces. Working with a combination of monochrome and highly saturated colours, I intend to explore the human interaction with the vibrant and chaotic nature of life in the city and the way that we are shaped by it. 

 

After studying Fine Arts in my native country, I have been lucky enough to receive several grants over the years that have given me the opportunity to live and work in New York City and later London.
