Artist's statement:

My artwork has always had an expressive, independent, and original style, without influence of castrated academics, as my particular way of seeing art is, above all, creative and in search for permanent creation.

I work since 1999 to incorporate to the flamenco art, painting, as this Andalusian art has always been expressed only through singing, dancing and music; that's why I've been called "pintaor" by several Spanish media. The concept of my artwork is to contribute flamenco to the visual arts, where color, movement and passion dominate.
