My interest for visuals and imagery starts at an early age, fueled by the weekly Sunday afternoon sessions at the local cinema, where they played two continuos films.

 

Born in Vic (Barcelona), I've lived in many different places before finally  I settling in the city of  Barcelona: Montreux , Paris, Buenos Aires, London , New York. Experiencing these cities has given me the opportunity to discover the work of some of the most dynamic visual artists in the world. 

In Barcelona I've studied in  Escola Massana, Estudio de Cine, Escola d'Historia de l'Art ESHAB, Escuela de Cine Bande à part, Institut d'Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya IEFC, Aula Excèntric.  In New York:  New York Film Academy NYFA, International Center of Photography ICP, Mono no Aware (Brooklyn), National Academy of Arts NA  and School of Visual Arts SVA.

 

 Inspired by the absolute impermanence and the constant movement around us, I use video and photography  in hopes of contributing in the creation of a better and more caring world.
