He is an artist who lives, works and devotes himself only to painting in Mexico, his country of origin. He recognizes that he does not compromise himself with the standards of the academy, but with the painting. It fluctuates between abstraction and representation, where the most important thing is to put his language into evidence.

His work is carried out on the canvas without visual reference or any mental representation. This is why he recognizes the great importance of experimenting on the white cloth instantaneously and therefore is called a formalist.
