The urban space triggers in me images that go to my work, feeding my imaginary world with walls corroded by weather conditions, abandonment and the passing of the time.

In those works I present a chaotic overlying of colours and textures emerging from old, torn, abandoned pieces of posters that I collect. Memories coming in fragments of bus or train tickets, little pieces of paper from places where I have been. I walked just looking for nothing and finding everything to transform and conform a new skin.

Through an overlapping of analogic and digital actions I re-design the images. Digital textile printing and projections are some of the tools that I use to recreate this visual universe into different types of surfaces.
