Abstract Expressionist artist based in NYC.
I’m inspired by music, people and rain.
Tango and jazz influence my paintings more than any other music genre, and I think that is because of how I feel identified by both, there is also a certain nostalgic and passionate feeling attached to both, related to my own experience as an artist. Both have deep roots in the struggles of life for - in the case of tango immigrants, and in the case of jazz, black people. They both tell a story of struggles of people who worked hard to express nostalgia or a feeling that arose out of oppression. They both tell the story of finding something good in a situation that is difficult. Tango music tells stories, of struggles, about love, about defeat, about Buenos Aires and its people.
Both tango and jazz inspire my work.
