Sense´s activation through aestethics scale, and color.

Color and stroke, imagination, a different kind of future.
What music or other audio do you listen to while you work?
Indie, classical, rock, electronic, rap, jazz.
When did you decide that art was part of you and your life?
I didn´t decide. It was alway there, when I was 6 years old I got first prize in “hands according to Kandisnky” competition at “Atelier Las Mercedes” in Caracas, Venezuela.
Where do you work on your artwork?
Everywhere, mostly in my head.
Where would you like to see your artworks exhibited?
Everywhere people can see, feel and appreciate them.
Why do you make art?
How could I not?
Why do you think art is important in our society?
The human being is capable of doing wonderful things, I consider art as one of them. The ability to convey your ideas, feelings, analysis, perceptions or goals artistically in any of its forms I perceive as something sublime, sometimes far beyond our own understanding. Not only to make the receiver feel, think or imagine, but to make him aware of his place and time in this world.
