My work is deal with issues intimately related to human existente. I investigate complex concepts using simple, basic, gestural, and direct language, trying to get close to the viewer through the characters, space and situations I depict on paper, mixing imagination with reality. I try to imprint on my drawings and Cartoons the results of my research regarding sensory perception – I Draw during sleppless nights - upon which most of my Work is based.
