"I owe to the technique in architecture and to the engineer the existence of the artist. The first contact with drawings and designs began early, at age four, when I was tall enough that my eyes could reach the drawings on my father's drawing board. Those lines that began close to my vision and seemed to disappear into infinity fascinated me from the beginning. He told me stories about how the ink was obtained, the tempera, the oil paint, and this aroused my curiosity to know more deeply the pigments and materials, and after the course of Plastic Arts I chose Chemical Engineering, where I realised that the world of Science is the same as Art. The contact with the laws of physics, optics, mathematics, chemistry, revealed me to be true Masters, even from a time when there was no such separation between the sciences, as well as a particular view of things that had previously gone unnoticed.
During 20 years of acting as an engineer in multinational companies, I had the opportunity to experience the most diverse realities and today, ahead of Meyer, I apply mainly in the development of new products with clients many of the concepts I learned in the art universe at the same time time in which I use in art the creation, technique and discipline of the concepts I bring from architecture and engineering.
