Digital Artist

Hey there, I’m a 32-year-old artist born in Barcelona, raised in Brussels, and currently splitting my time between Spain and Belgium. My love for art began when I was just three years old, painting and drawing all day. I won painting competitions with adults at just 12 years old, but then I got distracted by what society expected of me and pursued a degree in economics instead. It wasn’t until much later that I realized I was living someone else’s life and not my own. After a difficult turning point in my life – being diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety disorder, and a chronic illness and having to spend most of my time in bed – I knew that I had to focus on what truly made me happy. Unfortunately, my physical limitations made it challenging to pursue traditional forms of art. That’s when I discovered AI-art, and I saw an opportunity to use technology to create something unique and impactful.

I love creating worlds and asking deep existential questions that challenge our understanding of reality. I find inspiration in metaphysics, physics, and the mysteries of the universe. I’m fascinated by powerful fictional fantasy characters that have a significant impact on their surroundings. My art is often dark and fantasy-based. This comes from my own experiences of being sick, which has given me a unique and often dark, perspective on life. But it’s also a reflection of my love for fantasy movies, TV shows, video games and interesting science phenomenons. My biggest artistic influences are JRR Tolkien and Christopher Nolan, who both have a knack for creating awe-inspiring and epic worlds that captivate the imagination. I’m thrilled to be sharing my art with the world through this exhibition, and I hope that my work inspires others to think deeply about the world around them. I believe that art has the power to create empathy and emotion in people, and I hope to connect with viewers on a personal level through my art. Thank you for taking the time to read about my journey, and I hope you enjoy my work.

My art explores the intersection between fantasy and reality, drawing inspiration from metaphysics, physics, and the mysteries of the universe. I aim to create awe-inspiring, epic, and sometimes dark fantasy beings or characters, which have a strong influence on their surroundings. Through my art, I like to twist and subvert the accepted values and concepts of our world, extracting questions about the basis of our reality and the lens through which we see it. While my focus for this exhibition is on digital art, I also enjoy working with traditional mediums such as charcoal and pencil. These mediums allow me to create different textures and effects that complement my digital work. However, for this exhibition, I have chosen to showcase my digital art as it represents the current stage of my artistic development and reflects the potential of this exciting medium. Overall, I hope that my art can evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity in the viewer, encouraging them to explore their own perceptions of reality and the world around them.
