Self-taught painter, he began in the world of Graffiti in 1998 influenced by the pieces he saw on the tracks, on his continuous visits to Malaga on the commuter train. Since 2008, he began to exhibit Underground until 2012 when he began to exhibit more frequently in Galleries and Museums, both individually and collectively, see Neurotitan (Berlin), Fundación Cini (Venice), Cac Malaga or Matadero in Madrid.

The murals of him in the Russian Museum and the Pompidou Center in Malaga in 2018 and 2019 by the Maf (Málaga Film Festival) stand out. He has collaborated with companies such as Zalando, Unicaja, Vans, Hotel Higuerón...etc. His style in the beginning had a marked influence on Graffiti as in Animal Series, or his urban interventions loaded with visual poetry. In 2017 he broke with all of the above following his beginnings in abstraction.

He oscillates between the more geometric abstraction as in the series "Circles" 2018 or the more gestural abstraction as in the series "Estratos" 2019, among other series, "Umbrales" 2020 also stands out with a strong predominance of light.

In 2023 he has started a new series of paintings that are much more gestural and impulsive, enjoying the act of painting, the process, as a diary, with a use of color that reminds us of his beginnings, but with an important poetic charge. . He has begun to use for the first time words and phrases that he rescues from his daily life, reflecting a whole series of emotions and experiences of these last few months, where he talks to us about relationships and feelings.

New geometric figures appear, such as the triangle, a symbology that the author uses as metaphors and messages that tell us a story, his story... theirs.

He considers his work to be constantly changing and evolving, investigating new supports such as cardboard and the possibilities of paper. He combines his studio-based artistic work with large-format murals for public entities and private companies. He has also been carrying out a more educational part through workshops and talks on Urban Art.
