Hello! I am a creative contemporary artist from the south of Spain, Sevilla. I work on a visual life performance where paint and dance are feeding each other as the movement and expression of the body, with visual art. Exploring figurative and abstract nature and shapes of bodies with no limits in creating and give life to other matters.
