From an intense contemplation of the animal world, with some tenderness and ironic tone, the artist presents a series of works that contain a critical message that reveals the destructive capacity of man on Earth and the domain that applies, in particular, on the animals.

It aims to thereby convey an ecological note, trying to educate the spectator with some aspects such as climate change, genetic manipulation, the trafficking of animals from the approach to the creation of new species and impossible images that cause the public estrangement effect.

The mix of technology and traditional procedures (retouching by hand with pencils of color, collage, blurred) is an experimental way more for painting, understood as a field of conceptual tensions in our present world: painting as an image.
