Artist Statement

My drawings are never the product of my imagination.  I reproduce those images that I find in children's fashion magazines, advertising, and all kinds of media, which affect me in one way or another.  Most of the images I choose to draw, are the images that no longer have room in my head, and I need to process because I simply do not understand.   It is something like: “Hey, wait a second, what I'm seeing?”   I then need to externalize it, and this helps me to understand the state of our society.

When I paint I do not use traditional art means such as oils, paintings and those stuff.   I like to color like children do.  With my own childish stroke, I feel I can build a language that allows a greater understanding of childhood in today's society.  For me, the colors are life, and in the case of my work, these colors give life to that which has been forgotten and which we have left behind.

Today we see children in different conflicting situations.  Girls and boys are mothers, fathers, models, prostitutes, soldiers, etc.   It seems as if we lived in a world without childhood, without beginning, but with a premeditated end.  I believe in childhood, in that light spectrum emanating from their own essence and which I try to materialize with my work.   Regardless of the conditions, which children had to live, a child is always a child, and he will never cease to be.   Because their nature is untouchable, alive, full of colors, no one and nothing can alter it.   Mass media may try to change our mind, they might even make us forget, but no one will ever lose the child within, who is always full of life and color.
