- Madrid, Spain, 1966 -
Is an architect and sculptor whose work is based upon the reinterpretation of both shapes and metal. With an abstract approach, his works are conceived on the basis of the laws of mathematics and highly symbolic geometric impulses, the result of which is a series of works created on the basis of the golden ration (also known as the golden number or the phi number).
