The papers belong to a pictorial series in which Asia is very present. They are wallpapers with mixed techniques, but basically with watercolour and Chinese ink. These papers were born after a long trip to Asia. We can discover the stolen archaeologies, the monsoons caressing the roofs of Japanese pagodas or dragons by walking in an already non-existent China and waking up to become a great dragon in this world that is standardizing, that is becoming globalized, and that is losing its wealth….
Africa is also present in my paintings. They were painted after many trips to this continent. In my paintings, the acrylic technique is the most common. They tell us about water, abundance or its absence, the most important element for life…… This element is always present in my painting and in this series it appears represented in the shape of boats, canoes or heads of desert animals… to talk about the beauty of nature, water, rivers, or even the fishing with which man empties the oceans and one day he will catch the last fish….
Man continues to make his long journey, in a fragile pirogue, lost in his own ocean…
