“A brand new technique in the visual art! 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 explain the fourth dimension. I named it 4D.   

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


As the technique has never been done in the visual art and as I have never seen a painting made by a technique like that, I think, I have made my contribution to the art world".

Scientifically, the fourth dimension is represented when the third dimension formed by three axes (x, y, z) represents a cube. This cube moves in a fourth axis (w), which representes the time dimension, by changing the information in the cube and with time shift so you have a hypercube. That is what happens with my artwork when the canvasses, each one representing 3D, move and or switch sides changing the image (information) and having the time shift.



For a longtime artists represent the 3D (depth) on 2D surface (canvas, wood etc). However, Pablo Picasso anticipated the fourth dimension on 2D canvas in his cubist period. I started to make diptych, triptych and polyptych influenced by cubism since 1986 when I tried this new technique. I’d like to encourage other artists to try the same technique or other which represents the 4D. I think it’s time for upgrade from 3D to 4D and we should set the fourth dimension as a new trend in the visual arts.

It would be amazing to display them using a robot to change the images every 1 or 2 minutes. Resulting in an interesting integration of robotics into the visual arts.
