Up to now he has participated in 29 solo show and more than 90 group show.
In this moment he is very interested in the development of his research focusses, on a chromatic level, on the psychology of color. His creative process is based on alchemy and investigation with the translucent media he uses, attributed to the industrial field (methacrylate, glass), in equilibrium with traditional materials (oils and acrylics).

The end result brings him closer to the idea of the “crystallization” of painting.
His style or references comes from the new post-pictorial abstraction.
