Multidisciplinary artist, graduated in Fine Arts and Master’s degree of Artistic Production and Research at the University of Barcelona. During my studies I received a research grand in the Graphic Art Department and twice consecutively the Agaur Grand for academic activities to support the teaching staff.

My work has been part of exhibitions and Contemporary Art Fairs in European cities such as Barcelona, ​​Madrid, Valencia, Bilbao, Betanzos, Bologna, London, Magdeburg and Rome. During my career I have been nominated for awards such as; Art seen in BCN’18 – 100 of the best works seen in Barcelona in 2018, Banc Sabadell Award, Arts Libris (Barcelona, ​​2018), Emilio Sdun Memorial, (Valencia, 2016), XI International Engraving Biennial Josep de Ribera (Xàtiva, 2011), V Sculpture Contest, Benito Ductile Foundry (Manlleu, 2011) and Rei En Jaume Awards (Calvià, 2009).

My work is developed from the multiple, mainly from variations and alterations. I am interested in the processes in mass production to manipulate them and get multitude of multiple unique. As a starting point I take the errors of the medium in which I am working. Through repetition and accumulation the objects and the images become decontextualized, they lose their individual value and are placed in different and unusual contexts. My projects are based on the rituals and routines of everyday life. They reflect how superstitions and norms, imposed by society, affect our pace of life. Mostly, my works treat with subjectivity of representation – how we perceive what surrounds us and how it affects the routines we adopt.
