He attended Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona (2009), and later he finished the Master of Artistic Creation at the same University with the highest honors (2010). A new phase began in Limoges, where he worked, research studied and developed around the porcelain. During the year 2013, this research makes him travel to Jingdezhen, China, where surrounded by ceramics and craftsmen he worked on the application of ceramics and porcelain in the Chinese urban landscapes. He is currently working to apply all this knowledge in the architecture and urban planning that surrounds him.

The Shadow Series is the materialization of Jun’ichirō Tanizaki's thought from his book ‘In Praise of Shadows’. As it is described in the book, in the West light has always represented beauty, but in traditional Japanese aesthetics it is the shadow that keeps an enigma as attractive and powerful as the light of the West.
