Intro
My work concentrates a lot on the cities, and the lights that contribute to the loneliness of the night. Jewelery allows me to cover several disciplines, I nurture painting, sculpture, the digital field and the creative aspects of the new technology.

Do you think the jewelry is being standardized? What is local and universal in your artistic work?
At first, the jewelry was used as an amulet to protect you from evils or to have good luck in life. With the passage of time, it was standardized, this happens largely due to industrialization and chain work leaving repressed the artisan, author, and artist and relegating it to a lower level.
Jewelry today is a great means of expression for many artists, allowing to combine different subjects, such as the Art Sampler.
An Art that you can wear or that can be exhibited in a gallery, expo, museum, etc. 
My work concentrates a lot on the cities, and the lights that contribute to the loneliness of the night.
 
 What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example, with an exhibition)?
That people enjoy the experience and above all, surprise showing the hidden mystery of some of my works.
 
Are there other areas besides jewelry, present in your work?
Jewelery allows me to cover several disciplines, I nurture painting, sculpture, the digital field and the creative aspects of the new technology.
 
The last work, book, movie, city that has moved me was ...
In the latest work of the band Neurosis appears a song called A Season in the Sky and every time I hear it I end up with the creeps, the synthesizer arrangement is a pass.
  
A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me ... 
Spaces, where you work with recycled materials and creativity, is the primary tool to give a new use to this material.
 
Is there a designer, jeweler, artist that you appreciate a lot? 
I like the work of Ramón Puig Cuyàs.
 
What piece or work has given you the greatest satisfaction?
My work Holy.

Do you read jewelery magazines? What is your source for information?
On the Internet, I go inside and find what I need, and in books.

Do you talk about your work with other jewelry artists or with any other person?
For always with other artists, it is easier to talk about your work, or with people interested in it.
 
What is your first thought when you hear the word Future? What do you expect?
I hope to be happy and that my projects go forward.
