“For the last works I started and developed a style over the years that I had tried several times from ages not suspected, and I came through the deconstruction to a compromise between graphics, figurative and abstract, as I call it the “futurism of the broken window”.
It allows me to explore different facets, by seeing the subject from many points of view, such as spying through a broken glass, where the seeing and the not seeing brings you into a cosmic universe”.
