Smoke Paintings

Everything started with the lack of money in order to buy paintings.

In the studio which I worked at this days, in the old town of Barcelona, we had many electricity cuts, so I had to keep always some candles just in case.

So one day I didn´t had the money to buy paintings I started using candles instead.

Hanging the canvas from the ceiling I placed myself underneath and started to create my first -smoke paintings-.

The first paintings had a strong primitive caracter, but with the years I developed a technique that allows me to paint in an almost realistic way.

Shortly after I started with this technique my studio burned down due to an electric failure. Of course no one believed me.
