I was born on August 12th, 1985, in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Ever since I can recall, art, and music specifically, have had a special hold on my attention. I was lucky enough to have relatives in Finland, so I traveled a few times during my youth and more recently, and this has influenced me as a person and artist greatly. As a child I had an affinity towards mathematics, physics and numbers. I studied Industrial Engineering, and even though I always dreamed of becoming an artist, I never considered taking this path seriously until more recent years. I started playing piano about 8 years ago, and exploring photography, digital image manipulation, illustration, typography, and other forms of visual arts as means of self-expression. The creative process and the need to express and create something, anything, have always had a spell on me, and since 2010, I started to take my own artistic development more seriously.
I possess no formal education or fine art degree, and the digital medium is my main platform for expression. Nature, geometry, abstract imagery, mathematics, music, literature, and other artists are sources of inspiration. My artwork touches upon various subjects literally or subjectively, in a variety of digital mediums.
Creating art is not a full-time occupation of mine, and I also own an operate a digital marketing agency called Zennovación.
