“I was born in Mendoza, Argentina, the land of sun and superb wine. I live in Jerusalem with my two children. The city, a spiritual center for all religions and full of golden light, is the source of inspiration for my pieces, even if the city does not appear in them explicitly, its essence does. My work while representing everyday life scenes carries an atmosphere of spiritual introspection.

In my canvases, I work mainly with large palette knifes as not to get lost in unnecessary details. This allows me to concentrate my energies in large spaces with just a few, energetic and determined strokes of paint. This method enables me to follow my impulses, to paint with spontaneity but, at the same time, holding back, which helps the synthesis of the shapes.​

It is like talking about calm chaos, like depicting liberty with order. I make use of my intuition while intermingling it with a disorganized and, at the same time, organized nature.With the use of an interesting medium, plaster spactula original urban photographs and large open spaces, there is new meaning to the power of simplicity in composition.

Recently I began to work on aluminum with acrylic paint with several layers of lacquer. Working with this material forces different types of compositions, pushing me in the direction of colorful, abstract urban landscapes.”
