pens, posca and inks
Sketches - small formats
In these drawings, I depicted Imaginary constructions, they represent the essence of my practice,
when I began to create unusual architectures.
To fill in the gaps by building coincidences of forms that intersect, intermingle, juxtapose and connect.

This is an experimental painting based on a work of the photograph Filip Dujardin, who makes compositions of surrealist architectures.
The aim here was to combine detailed drawings with the painting to create textures.
For instance, I realized deep pen drawings on paper which I used to strip parts of a thin layer of acrylic paint from the canvas. Then, etchings were made into the paint with a metal point in some parts.
Thereafter, I experimented the light intensity which allowed me to see the engravings appear.
With this technique I had to be very quick before the paint dried - I enjoyed the process in engaging in a rapid performance.

I believe that constructions express a physical manifestation of our personal and collective aspirations;
there is a direct relationship between the architecture we conceive and our living experiences.
This large painting represents a modular city.
High-tech architectures have the potential of being more responsive and representative of a generation.
I tried to depict the world of today related to technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence.
I found an other manner of making interesting textural aspect: after coating the surface with primary colors layers, I was able, by engraving with the metal point, to see multicolor lines appear.
As I later realized, all these experimentations would not have worked as well on a canvas.
