Only when he arrived in Paris, he began to paint on the canvas at the Ephemeral Hospital Workshop. His career has so far pointed out in the universe with the most beautiful services in which the issue of urban environments and explosions of norms is returned, through gigantic works whose shape and color are the key words that serve as a means of communication. His work with a lot of hope and enthusiasm is a way to say that life is beautiful and art.
