about

Coming from a remote village in Madrid, my eagerness to escape the traditional pueblo life has led me to live in England, Germany and now the land of saunas and Papá Noel: Finland. I do not limit my practice to a single artistic field, and I am an advocate for the potential of art to inspire meaningful change in this world. Throughout my career, marked by constant freelance work, I have mastered the art of unemployment, transforming it into a lifestyle choice.
