Born 1974 in San Juan, Puerto Rico


The sculptures created during the last two years deals with situations in the city that transmit, in one way or another, feelings of animosity, resignation, fear or violence. I employ different materials such as papier mâché, ceramic, wood and pvc to recreate objects usually found within a city context, revealing the diverse ways architecture and public space affect our subconscious.
