Since 2008 lives and works in London. Its main gallery is now reference the prestigious Imago Art Gallery, with offices in London and Lugano. "In my paintings I construct a reality based on decontextualized mundane scenes of young and attractive people in urban settings. A reality that goes beyond the capture of an instant but seeks to express, in more general terms, the notion of a 'globalised' urban youth according to their idealised vision of themselves.  

This concept is materialized in their attitudes, how they occupy the place, the way they stand or sit, showing the confidence they have in their own body, always dressed with fashionable clothes. The environments in which they appear are just hints of the world they live in, often personalised by their intervention, like in the case of graffiti or tags, but never a mere description of a particular place or city."
