In my work I attempt to show everything that is within my reach or around me, mixed with feelings, actions and social problems. In my chronicles as an artist I try to establish a link between the viewer and the work. This allows me to maintain the freshness in each work. I have always been influenced by the impressionist artists of the avant-garde of the 20th century, such as Claude Monet, Camille Pizarro, Joaquin Sorolla and others. In addition to Russian artists of socialist realism: Ilia Repin, Valentin Serov; The American painter Edward Hopper and the photorealists: Richard Estes and the Spanish Antonio Lopez.
