    Deadly Sins

    "Deadly Sins" is a very artificial artwork. It is as simple as the human being's own primal instincts. It is visceral. The greatest expressive force is the instinctual, the one that flows organically from the entrails, like the desires that nourish the capital sins. The visceral is intense and concise in expressive force, it is repeated and hardly changes. Hence, I has represented in a very simple and repetitive way each capital sin.

    Africa, sweet Africa

    Africa is... Africa is colour, rhythm, art, time, mystery, imagination, beauty, sensuality, nostalgia, dreams, art, future. Africa is a wonderful collage of flowers, hope and happiness.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

    Powerful Woman

    This is a tribute to the freedom and emancipation of women whose protagonist is the mother's artist, an Arab, African and Muslim woman who from a young age opted for freedom and equality as a lifestyle. The aims of this series is to break the clichés of Arabic and Muslim women, vindicate the rights of women to be able to decide their own destinies, and to break the fear and silence of sexism.

    Loving Italy

    This series has a dual look. On the one hand, it’s inspired by settings that evoke the splendor of Italy, its festive and fun character, its exuberance, its artistic everyday life, its aesthetic elitism, its intensity and creative excellence, its passions… On the other hand, "Loving Italy" represents a reflexion about the vicious circles of art nowadays, with its excesses and its vanities. A reflexion about of this strange time we live, in the midst of a chaos of trends, appearances, styles… “Loving Italy” is a reflexion about this reality through an ironic look, sometimes funny and other times a slave to its own superficiality, absolutely addicted to itself and to the judgment of others.  The work shows that dual reality without fear of altering the order of things to discover harmonically disordered and dreamlike scenarios, but always conciliatory.
