I was born in Rome and raised in Venezuela. There I went to an Italian-Venezuelan school where we studied the culture, literature and art of both countries. I was always accompanied on the one hand by the ancient European civilization and on the other hand by the legacy that pre-Columbian civilizations have left us.
Iconas is a series that was born from this union. Byzantine icons and church altarpieces merged with images of Aztec, Mayan, and Inca idols.
The series was made in oil on canvas and sometimes on wood. Many times I used pastels, gold leaf and acid.
