ARTIST'S STATEMENT //
I am a visual artist, born and raised in Tenerife, with a deep passion for travel, street, social-documentary, conceptual, and pop art. My work is heavily influenced by the vibrant and ever-evolving pop culture that surrounds us. To express my fascination with this culture, I have delved into different mediums such as photography, video art, writing, and collage. I am also a contributor to various media platforms, using my words to further explore this world that captivates me.
My greatest sources of inspiration are my travels and the people I meet along the way. As an artist, my goal is to tell stories through my camera, creating a continuous narrative that reflects my experiences and encounters. Beyond my artistic pursuits, I am a philologist and a secondary school teacher.
Despite my formal education, I am a self-taught visual artist. However, I have honed my skills through a two-year advanced photography course and another in cinema and television. My works have been showcased in numerous international exhibitions, festivals, and cultural events, gaining recognition and acclaim worldwide. Publications have featured my work, solidifying my presence in the art world.
Currently, my focus is on documenting identity and promoting the message of the Latin phrase "Carpe Diem" through my art. Recently, I was honored to receive the prestigious Rafael Ramos García International Photography Award. On my blog, Pop Sonality, I share my art and cultural experiences with the world, hoping to inspire others to embrace and celebrate their unique identities.
