My creative activity is structured around the material as a conducting vehicle. The sheet of paper that from “nothing” manages to be transformed into something else through significant artisan processes. It then becomes an intervened book, a graphic work, an embroidered map, an editorial project and even multiplies itself to cover a chapel that has fallen into disuse and is about to collapse.
The geometry and repetition of the gesture through actions such as cutting, dividing, measuring, folding, sewing, binding and stamping are some of the components with which I interrogate, evaluate and examine the possibilities and limitations of the material, in a constant desire for discovery and surprise. It is in this process that ideas linked to my experience as an individual are generated, such as my condition as a migrant, training within the field of mathematics, literary fluencies or my own didactic work.
Born in Havana city, he works and lives in Barcelona. Graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the Higher Polytechnic Institute of Havana. From a very young age he began his artistic training in a self-taught way where he further developed through continuous research and practice, finding in the intersection between textile techniques, the three-dimensionality of paper, the handmade printing and the book; an object of his own modality of expression.
Parallel to his artistic activity, he develops a didactic work giving workshops and courses in public and private institutions throughout Spain, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and United Kingdom.
