In 2012 he received Grant for development of international artistic projects, Directed by Antonio López and Juan F. Lacomba sponsored by Valentín Madariaga Foundation.
An essential character of his work that has not changed is the constant and persistent exploration of the space phenomena. The images also arise without human figures. He currently researches on internal and symbolic elements in art of all ages of gravity, timelessness and the rescued object, are largely the fundamental aspects of his recent work. Influenced by the Internet phenomenon in recent years, he narrate schemes from found images and life experiences that make us think about the term ‘’reality’’.
The ‘’Numen’’ is used by sociologists to express the idea of magical power in an object, especially when referring to ideas within the Western tradition.
