I was born in 1972 in Barcelona, but I’ve never felt bound anywhere and I have traveled extensively. I lived in other countries and I considered NYC as my second city. I have never studied art and my training as an artist has been entirely self-taught. My training, ideas, sources of inspiration… are all dynamic and changing, and so are the techniques and methods I employ. I try not to focus on anything too specific and progress by using different sources and experimenting. My training as a social worker, my passion for traveling, my family history and my experience with visual arts…are all very diverse and not at all uniform, which allows me to be very creative. I recently started painting on wood, is a bit complicated because you have to be very careful and delicate, but the result is very rewarding. My work is a reflection of my way of life, my career, training, experiences, travels, interests. It is difficult to define and is constantly moving, growing and modified on the fly. I am very interested in history, the ancient religions, politics and my art is imbued with that.
Boston Tattoo Convention Artist
We collaborate with illustrators, visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, photographers, and now tattoo artists! Collective Arts is taking over the Boston Tattoo Convention – find us at the beer garden and stop by our artist lounge to see our vibrant street art backdrop and series art gallery. We’ve teamed up with 3 tattoo artists who will be attending the convention to do what we do best: combine art with beer.
