The paintings of this artist are clearly figurative, but we need to make clear that, certain parts of his works resemble some characteristics rather close to abstraction.

These are streets with an effervescent and intense life, windows with the laundry hanging, balconies open to the outside, buildings that shake off the old neighborhoods, maybe unable to resist the weight of all their hidden stories….
