Universidad de Verano de Adeje 2019

The creation of the painting that will illustrate this year’s “Universidad de Verano de Adeje” is one of the most challenging commissional works I have ever faced. I felt a big responsability towards Universidad de La Laguna, Adeje’s institutions and the intellectual community from the Canaries in general!

Finally, the concept I wanted to get accross: “knowledge will set you free” was born and melted in 3 main ideas I tried to express in a very personal way:

  1. The sunrise over Barranco del Infierno: one of the highlights and most visited hiking tracks in Tenerife. Also, metaphorically: wisdom is light.
  2. The paragliders flying: Adeje is the place in Europe with the longest paragliding season. Also, metaphorically: wisdom “gives you wings”.
  3. The roots / branches which create figures communicating, symbolizing the importance of oral tradition and languages as vehicles to share universal knowledge.

Really looking forward to seeing my work all over the island! Stay tunned for news regarding UVA 2019!


Recent works

The first half of 2018 was full of new projects and some interesting commissional works, so I finally moved from the old gallery in Adeje to a new (private) studio in the quiet village of Tijoco and managed to give life to new canvases…

I continue to be inspired by the beauty and magic of nature: curvy trees and the magnetism of the full moon over the Atlantic. A Summer with shooting stars and calima. My favourite sources of inspiration, whilst trying to touch their soul, investigating new techniques and tools and finally giving birth to these nightscapes and dreamy scenes, in a natural romantic mood… Enjoy!

Volcanic Love

Expo_AmorVolcanico_LowIt is a great pleasure and honor for me to present my first solo exhibition since I moved to Tenerife in 2015.

In the last 2 years have been working with new techniques, exploring a new way of approaching the canvas, feeling absolutely free and just letting the painting flow.

In “Volcanic Love” you will find my latest creations (at least the ones that have not been sold yet) as well as other older paintings, some even dating back to 2004. It is a very interesting collection where you will see how the life, emotion and colour in my trees and nature have evolved through the years.

I invite you all to join me on Mondays or Fridays for a little chat and a guided tour through the exhibition. Simply call +34 667 608 083 to sign up for a particular day.

Thank you for your love and support, which keeps inspiring and guiding me!!!
