I am a Spanish artist creator of a Contemporary Mosaic concept thanks to the technique "natural marble collage" which I developed years ago. This mosaic art is created by the veins and tones in the marble itself. Every work is designed and made by our family-owned mosaic studio in Spain. Working the marble as a combination of sculpture, collage and photography techniques, the mosaics are never printed, making them one-of-a-kind and eternal. My style expands from abstract and neoplasticism to monochromatic photorealistic portraits, using natural marble as an eternal material. I have an original art portfolio, collections and also working by commission. I have always been stirred by the passion for the beauty innate in nature. In my youth, it inspired me to become a photographer and painter. However, of all the different creative expressions bestowed by nature, my underlying passion, the one which had me captivated from the start, was stone. The hard stone tables in The Prado in Madrid, the softness of the Danaïd in Musée Rodin, and a personal study of the veins in marble were my inspiration. My training as an industrial engineer was the perfect complement to enable me to design this technique, which makes possible to express in natural stone as never before. This contemporary mosaic concept creates a new step in mosaic art evolution, redefining one of the most primitive forms of artistic expression: placing stones side by side to create lasting art.
