"As an engineer, I Closely communicate with the environment, observing the perpetual confrontation and tension between resistance and harmony, technology and humanity. The artistic expression of these constant influences and emotions and their conversion into creative energy is my Passion and allows me to escape from the pressures of the day to day life. "
