My work is influenced by conceptual art giving the importance to the concept/idea above the object which only will have a personal and sentimental value. Following this influence I have worked with any medium which will benefit the creation process(see biography:creative work) The most recent work is on time/space. Using photography i try to capture and express that moment in that place where you can see through your eyes and soul. Thanks everyone for letting me do so.
