Born in Caracas, Venezuela, on September 23, 1964.
Veterinary doctor graduated from the Universidad Central de Venezuela in 1993. I started the artistic inclination in 1988, in the O'Batallá ceramic workshop.
After some years of free personal work in the molding area and experimenting with various materials, I started formal sculpture classes from March 2014 to March 2016, in the Ceramics and Sculpture workshop of the renowned artist Eleonora Tugues, in Caracas, Venezuela; It is there where I formally start as a sculptor, using various techniques such as clay, fiberglass, plasticine, iron, maché paper and carving in polyurethane foam.
My first piece, molded in fiberglass at the beginning of June of that same year, was called "Resignation", where I start to perfectly fit the emotions and translate them into the different pieces. This piece was followed by “Shock” both representing two of the stages of the mourning.
From there, I created several pieces that highlight the movement, body expression and emotion implicit in each work. Between July and October of that same year, I created the series of trapeze artists, of different formats, made up of 7 pieces, ¨The Guardian¨, ¨Relaxed¨, ¨Trapeze Apprentice¨, ¨La Flaca¨, ¨Rasta on Swing¨, ¨Ballerina¨ and ¨Anastasia¨.
In December 2014 and May 2015, I participated in several exhibitions at the Caracas Sports Club and Santa Paula Club, respectively and from June 2015 I exhibited permanently in the art gallery "Rosas y algo más" and occasionally in the Gallery “Arte y Encuentros", both located in Caracas, Venezuela.
In January 2015 I was chosen to create an image of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron of animals, for the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences of the Universidad Central de Venezuela. This sculpture was unveiled in October 2015 in that same place, where it remains and is used as the main image in the different important events of the Faculty.
In the meantime, and since then, I have created some other pieces, such as "Seduction" and "Lullabye", molded in plasticine and cast in resin; ¨The Burden¨, carved in polyurethane foam, inspired by Claude Monet. ¨Kanda¨, which represents my personal interpretation of the great Wassily Kandinsky, and that today is a unique style of two-dimensional and/or three-dimensional sculpture, in different formats and materials.
In June 2015, I began studying goldsmithing at the school of the jeweler Fernando Silva, Caracas and since then alternate techniques of both crafts in the two artistic areas.
As of October 2017, I began to participate in several exhibitions at the CVAP Gallery (Curator's Voice Art Projects), Little River, Miami; at MIArt Space, Wynwood Art District, Miami; White's Art Gallery, Miami. Also, participating in important international Art Fairs.
I created several pieces that highlight the movement, body expression and emotion implicit in each work.
I started to perfectly fit the emotions and translate them into the different pieces.
