Multidisciplinary artist who not only devoted himself to the painting and to the sculpture, but also it penetrated into different fields, as for example: “Tremulous Meat” collaborated with Pedro Almodóvar in the movie, he designed curtains for Telemadrid, Santa Clara created a china for the signature; and he collaborated with important publications as ByN Dominical (Sunday magazine of the newspaper ABC), The Country, The Magazine of the newspaper El Mundo, Marie Claire, elle and the magazine Rolling Stone, between others.

Pop stands out in the art, and it produces homage to the world of the publicity (constant subject-matter and ambience where it worked eight years), of the movies or of the Spanish baroque painting.

He settled in Paris, with the intention of becoming a writer. There one contacted with the circles of Spanish exiles and began to do, without any type of formation.

In the middle of the sixties he began to collaborate with the painters Gilles Aillaud and Antonio Recalcati. He is considered to be one of the principal representatives of the critical imagining, of fundamentally political and social content. His painting also adopts influences of the style dadaísta, of the superrealism and of pop art.

In 1968 it took part in the Lounge of the Young Painting with the work “The bullfight of the butterfly”. On the following year, Claude Levin of Paris realized his first individual sample in the Gallery, in that it expressed of explicit form his opposition to the Franco period.
