I want to share my experience of painting murals on canvas. I can say that painting a large-format mural is the best thing that has happened to me as an artist. There is nothing more exciting than to paint a mural, on request, and for a given space. Your client provides you with the space for the mural, and everything that comes out and is reflected in, are your purest and deepest feelings; it is the vacuum as your inspiration.

The process of painting a mural is incomparable; it is unique, and to me it means absolute and infinite expression. It means to open the door of your concerns; it means to get lost in an ocean of feelings, of facts, of realities. It represents the beginning of not knowing the end; it is to not measure space; simply put: it is to be carried away by the brush; as the wind, the water and life carries you away.

Labyrinth is a sculpture project to be realized in a large scale (currently I have produced a few scale models). The base material can vary depending on the environment where it will be located. This piece could be made in steel, resin, plastic or wood.

How the idea of Labyrinth does come about? For me it is a way to exemplify life, because when you mention the word "Labyrinth" it suggests a secret; an unknown, uncertainty, games, fear, joy, fantasy... We associate Labyrinth to the unknown; to enter a place that we do not know how we will find the exit; with its maze with moments of darkness and moments of clarity; but after trying and trying to find the exit, we see light; the light that leads us to be back out of the Labyrinth. Just like in our life, when we manage to get out of our own Labyrinth, we feel free again.
