Puzzle Art & 4D - A brand new technique in the visual arts! By moving and or switching the canvasses on the diptych, triptych and polyptych the image transformation takes place, I named it Puzzle Art. In addition, that technique represents the fourth dimension, I named it 4D. (abstract figurative).

Interlineation - That technique is the result of all my experiments and researches I've made in my artistic life. By gluing strings to delineate implied sense figures I realized that the strings give me the freedom to create subconsciously. I named Interlineation. (abstract figurative).

Recycle Art - In the mid-nineties I tried three-dimensional material, so I went through a stage experimenting collage using found objects and or others that is no longer in use. Anything I could give another meaning. I named that technique Recycle Art.​ (abstract figurative).

Sunflower - That stage I made sunflowers and animals as a subject  in the same technique (acrilic) and style (abstract figurative).

Figurative - That theme shows lots of figures in different techniques (acrilic and mixed media); styles (realism, surrealism and expressionism) and a diversity of subjects.

LandscapeThat theme shows lots of landscape in different techniques (oil and acrilic); styles (realism, surrealism, cubism and abstract figurative) and a diversity of subjects.

NudeThat theme shows lots of nudes in different techniques (oil, acrilic and mixed media); styles (realism, surrealism, cubism and abstract figurative) and a diversity of subjects.

STATEMENT

I started my artistic life as a self-taught painter in 1985. Since then I​​​'ve experienced almost every medium on almost every support hunting my own formula. ​​

In the mid-nineties I tried three-dimensional material, so I went through a stage experimenting collage using found objects and or others that is no longer in use. Anything I could give another meaning. I named it Recycle Art.​

From Recycle Art I evolved to Interlineation.

Interlineation is the result of the evolutionary summation of all my experiments and research I've made in my artistic life. By gluing strings to delineate implied sense figures I realized that the strings give me the freedom to create subconsciously. In doing so, I noticed that the strings solve the big issue known as blank canvas by themselves because each figure gets its own space in its self-creation resulting in an interesting game of interpretations by viewers, whether in the same or a different angle.

When I get an amount of strings to apply on the canvas It's as if the design was already in the tangle of strings in my hand and I feel like I have lots of pencils at the same time.

     “ INTERLINEATION ALLOWS ME TO SET THE ABSTRACT DESIGN FREE AND THE RESULT IS PURE AND GENUINE ”.

I also developed another technique. By moving and or switching the canvasses on the diptych, triptych and polyptych the image transformation takes place. I named it Puzzle Art. In addition, that technique represents the fourth dimension. I named it 4D. I'm pretty sure that a painting like Puzzle Art & 4D has never been done in the visual art so I think I have made my contribution to the art world.

     “PUZZLE ART & 4D could revolutionize the way of creation in the visual arts and I hope it awakens all people to the fourth dimension in all senses".
