From the age of five I have felt an urge to create. Inspired by the beautiful yellow paper in my father''s special edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica, I felt compelled to meticulously fill the pages with my drawings. Eventually I was discovered and punished. It was my first lesson regarding vocabulary in art: urge, pleasure and pain.
Much later I received my M.A. from the ‘College of Fine Art’, Madrid, specialising in painting. Since my graduation I was always following the career of the professional artist, aspiring to make a living from my art. To begin with it was very hard and complicated. I moved first to Geneva then to Los Angeles teaming up with different galleries, and occasionally painting backdrops and props for Theatre. Eventually I collaborated with so many people on such a wide variety of projects, travelling frequently between Europe and USA, that my wife mockingly named me the ‘Soldier of Fortune’.
In October of 1988 I started collaborating with Nicholas Treadwell Gallery and moved from Madrid to London. In 1991 we parted company but I decide to stay in London because, by that time, it radiated a unique energy. It was an extremely creative period for all forms of visual arts.
At the end of nineties I had my first meeting with Glyn Washington and Paul Green. They visited my studio in central London and we clicked instantly, yet it took us another couple of years to start working together. I hope that the rest will be history.
