I have always loved cartoons and comic books, they were my first contact with art and illustration. I started reproducing the characters I liked the most and acquiring knowledge on my own, through books, magazines and practicing observation drawing. In the late 90s, I started doing graffiti in my neighborhood and soon after in the city, which was a fundamental turning point in my life. I learned and continue to learn a lot in graffiti, including techniques, styles, and the importance of community and collaboration.
In the early 2000s, I started working as an office boy and assistant in a design office. Later, I worked as a scanner operator and prepress technician in a pre-press bureau. It was at this time that I discovered digital coloring possibilities for my drawings and began testing possibilities in future graffiti projects. I continued to work as a prepress technician until I entered graphic design university and at the same time began working as a designer at a technology publisher, where I also illustrated some articles.
In the University, I expanded my knowledge of academic drawing through specific graphic design disciplines. After the university, I looked for more courses focused on art history and contemporary art with the intention of delving deeper into this universe. It was from this interest that I fell in love with the Latin American tradition of art, especially the mural tradition, and with artists such as David Alfaro Siqueiros, Diego Rivera, Clemente Orozco and Oswald Guayasamin.
In addition to my work as an illustrator, I am also part of the Street Art duo B-47sa, producing murals and canvases since 1999.
