Having devoted himself to calligraphy and typography for a long time, he now expresses himself through attract and unstructed figures which he represents tracks of a decadent society, using different techniques such as painting, screen print, sculpture, installation and video. He has developed an apparently chaotic universe, raw and authentic, dynamic and powerful, related to a search of movement and some deformation of space, which symbolizes a kind of emergency.
