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” stage.

“Interlineation” is the result of all my experiments and research I made until the late nineties where I looked for texture/3D. It's a mixed media - collage of strings and painting - which I have two options to make it:

In one I glue strings randomly to delineate using my subconscious and the result is implied sense figures or abstract figurative if you will. In doing so that way, 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.

The other one I delineate, with purpose, figures and themes but still obtaining the benefit of texture / 3D.

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".
