My Bio
I am a full-time expressionist painter with a surrealist edge. I paint urban landscapes and personify buildings so they look like the people who live in them.

I render urban landscapes with a blend of caricature and idealism. I make buildings look like living things and my stylized distortion of architecture often represents the people who inhabit the buildings and neighbourhoods.

The vivid colours and implied instability create a whimsical view of the city that seems as happy as most of us wish we were. I’ve learned that you can’t control the world but you can interpret it so I choose to emphasize the color and character and electricity of life. My hope is that those who like my work get a jolt of familiarity.

Current Residence: Vancouver
Favourite cartoon character: Pinky & The Brain
Personal Quote: Life isn't fair, it's just fairer than death, that's all (W. Goldman, Princess Bride)

Oooooooh! These are so cool.

wow! I love the bright colors, and style! 👏🏼🧡👏🏼

Last year I went on vacations to Vancouver, the city of my dreams, a place as nowhere in Mexico, I hope i could coming back soon but I'm affraid of for getting details as the landscapes, your gallery is awesome and really is Vancouver, with those images it will be easier to remember the city
Thank you so much! I am glad you enjoyed your time in Vancouver.
Hey, your art is awesome!, I like how you warped things sometimes. You should check out my drawing of Vancouver, done cartoon style. Out of all the cities in the world I chose to draw Vancouver..... Rio would be cool too. I'll be sure to see what else you paint! 
I saw it! It's really cool. I love that perspective.
Thanks so much, It's great to get your opinion!. I'm spending time on my youtube channel right now though, so hopefully I can find some time to draw in the future, I wanted to try fat and skinny markers next time!
