Born in 1986 in Sao-Paulo, Brazil.
Lives and works in Buenos-Aires, Argentina.

He went through various aesthetic stages until reached geometric abstraction. This work talks about compositional exercises and color studies. The images of his pictorial language are associations of shapes and colors that come from anime, electronic music, nature and the digital world, is characterized by constant production of paintings on canvas, wood collage, large format murals, digital illustration and animation. In his pieces he proposes to break the forms of assembly of pure geometric figures, seeking to generate movement, volume, textures through different materials, works on the decomposition of light with a post-graffiti neo-futuristic aesthetic.
