About

My work as a designer has always undeniably been influenced by the visual arts that surrounded me since i was a child.

Born to a venezuelan artist and art dealer in New York City, in the midst of the latinamerican literature and coneptual and cinetic art movements, which combined with my love of math and geometric math theorems -as have influenced artists such as hungarian constructivist Naum Gabo- led me to work on the manequin cutting and folding the material till I find interesting geometric compositions that occur due to the way that I juxtapose them. All of this, combined with the sensual curves of the women, I create them for resulting in an interesting contradiction… Pieces that are both quite sexually charged and visually groundbreaking.
