BIOGRAFÍA


(ESP)

Crecí en el taller de mi padre, profesor de dibujo, artista de paisajes al óleo con espátula y amante de los cómics, pasión que me motivó a cursar Bellas Artes (Universidad de La Laguna, Tenerife 91-95; Erasmus Amberes/Bélgica 95-96).

Durante 20 años me he especializado en obra submarina en óleo y acuarela sobre lienzo, retratando los fondos marinos de las Islas Canarias.

Actualmente continúo realizando retratos submarinos por encargo, la serie anual de pequeño formato "Esquinas de Agua" (22 x 16 x 3,5 cm.) y actualizando el perfil artístico en el campo del concept art 2D y 3D.

BIOGRAPHY


(ENG)

I grew up in my father's studio, a drawing teacher, oil landscape artist with spatula and lover of comics, a passion that motivated me to study Fine Arts (University of La Laguna, Tenerife 91-95; Erasmus Antwerpen/Belgium 95-96). 

For 20 years I have specialized in underwater work in oil and watercolor on canvas, portraying the seabed of the Canary Islands.

Currently, I continue to make commissioned underwater portraits, the annual small-format series "Esquinas de Agua" (22 x 16 x 3.5 cm.) And update the artistic profile in the field of 2D and 3D concept art.
