Artist Statement

“X-press Yourself” and “Sexo en Nueva York” may appear to be different series, however they are link together in the fight against the ignorance of the so called "first world" society. The society of consumerism and brain washing through social medias, communication media and television. Xpress Yourself is a strong call for people to abandon the hedonistic and celebrity bubble that traps us and come back to our senses. To uncover truths, to regain ethics and values. It a call to fight for humanity with the help and collaborations of different artist involved in activism. Each pictures of Xpress Yourself has been created and composed like paintings whose meaning are craving for justice and veracity. 

Unlike the very graphically reworked pictures of X-Press Yourself, "Sexo en Nueva York" does not have any photographic manipulation,it has recently been awarded by Spain “Desecaja Awards”. This series called ironically as the Series “Sex in the City” (Sexo en Nueva York in Spain) and it makes as reflection of the impact of a very consumerist and materialist society on young artist that needs to find many different alternatives to pursue their dream or even to survive. The images are made in a ''The hall of mirrors' reminding us of being in circus attraction, this is my metaphor of this life. The images portray real people with different genders and sexualities living in an underground scene in the heart of Brooklyn. “Time does not stop, the world is always changing, Refuse the ignorance and this time the technology could be in your side. Just remember, X-Press 
yourself.”
