Mexican visual artist born in Paris, France, on January 8th, 1975.
As an artist I am driven by the need to crete beautiful, emotion and thought-provoking art pieces in form and content, that connect with both art connoisseurs and common people, combining the aesthetics of the present world with those of the old masters.
