CRITICAL REVIEW

In his portraits and compositions he develops a realist direction, in the service of evocations of some historic and cultural personalities. The form is clear, enrolling in the commemorative monument’s conventions. Most of his works are busts destined to public space. Same stylistic cues can be found in his bas-relief and compositions.
