Born in a Galician fishing village that goes by the name of Foz in 1990, he moved to São Luis of Maranhão from 2004 to 2006, and returned to Spain in order to finish his high school studies. In 2008 he moved again, but this time to Perth, in Western Australia, where he, disillusioned with Spanish education, decided to find work as anything and to do little trips around the western coast. After one year, he enrolled in the Architecture course at the Curtin University in Perth. In 2010, he applied to the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. After three years, he is now undergoing a third year project, under the tutorage of Ricardo de Ostos and Nanette Jackowski (intermediate 3), that is dealing with Amazonian jungle in relation to the ones that wonder too deep, the fever-dreamer); the product that comes out of this struggle and how it is manifested and expressed in his main interest. If in the XV century, ink on paper was the way to express what overwhelms any coherent system, now he is using the pedantic qualities of the Broadcast as a language that betrays itself and becomes, at the end, self-referential due to its obvious detachment from the real and the impossibility of conveying a live sensation dependant of such an intense place like the Amazon. A landscape of operatic emotional outbursts.
