Since I can remember, I have been able to see colours while hearing sounds and music. This is a perceptual condition called synaesthesia and it deeply influences my works. During the last years, I have created video animations that reflects visually what I hear, mostly Contemporary Classical music pieces or sounds of Nature. The last one “Visus Sonitus I” , based on the “Concert for Birds and Orchestra” by acclaimed composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, was finalist of Lumen Prize 2015.
I have also made video mapping installations that explores the concept of organicity, with recurrent visual elements as fluids, clouds, fractal strings, branches or birds flocks, also present in my early oil paintings.
My artistic concept tries to go beyond mental categories, to access an augmented state of consciousness where opposite concepts and perceptions blend. Each of my works is conceived then to raise a global sense of empathy and awareness, not only with the pure sensations that live in the here and now, but also, at a deeper level, with the mysterious and fascinating forces of Nature in constant motion and quest for balance.
Finally, I am also a lecturer and a professional in the film industry and work as Senior FX Technical Director, creating visual effects for movies such as Man of Steel, Rush, Thor: the Dark World, John Carter, Total Recall, Jupiter Ascending, Exodus or Avatar
