Artist statement:

"My work is political in as much as I am a political person, living in overtly politicized times. It is not politically neutral, as nothing is. It has a sick sense of humor because its topics are perverse. For the same reason, it is also grotesque and crude. It often makes use of well-known images, precisely because they are well known. These images are often portraits of power and its subjects, digested into the artwork, and transformed into fantasy. This work is not a tool of political conversion. I do not pretend that it will change the minds of those opposed to its politics. It is simply a mixture of whim and expression that does not ignore the world in which it is created."
