The artist Valencian introduces a taste for refined aesthetics, mixed with a subtly ironic language. The result are works of great plastic beauty in which there are nods to American pop artists with a decontextualized advertising and cinematographic component that gives the work an interesting language that captures the attention of the observer, who feels “forced” to unravel and interpret the whole iconographic world.

Logos, Cinemaspop o Popsportamong others, are some of the series or collections of the Valencian creator, who in spite of his youth accumulates an artistic career of several decades demonstrating with coherence that Pop-Art is still in vogue.

Numerous important collections, both public and private, have works by the artist in their collections, such as the Museo Nacional de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS), the Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno (IVAM), the Sydney Besthoff Foundation of New Orleans (United States), the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemizsa Collection and the Kneip Collection of Luxembourg, among others.
