Artist Statement:

“It’s my main objective as an artist and communicator to express my point of view and articulate visually our cultural realities and social concerns. My paintings are barrio scenes that are reminders or memories of familiar places. The symbolism depicts some of our cultural beliefs and also the condition and struggles of a segment of people in our society”.
