Chaplin and the kid (1999)

Pencil on paper, 21 x 30 cm

Drawn while studying at University of Navarra. What I remember most about this drawing is that when I finished it I stored it in a binder and most of the graphite faded. And I had to redraw many parts of it!

Australia (2000)

Pencil on paper, 21 x 30 cm

Drawn in Pamplona (Spain) during my stay at the University of Navarra to learn the Northern blot technique. I copied it from a National Geographic magazine that I found in the apartment where I lived when I was studying Biochemistry. I remember being drawing the face of the girl sitting on the couch with my former university flatmates while watching TV.

Mikonos (2002)

Watercolor on canvas, 15 x 42 cm

Painted in Seville in (maybe) 2002, during my PhD. I remember my brain breaking down trying to figure out how to paint water! Finally I guess I got some kind of water effect…

Girl (2005)

Watercolor on paper, 30 x 45 cm

Painted in Freiburg (Germany) during my stay with Prof Salim Al-Babili. Unforgetable months in all senses, and particularly proud of the hands shadows. Very difficult the hair… And with Salim and previous work with Javier Avalos, I discovered that fungi are capable of synthesizing their own retinal!

Edu in Malaga (2009)

Acrylic on canvas, 92 x 65 cm

Painted in Madrid from a picture. I don’t remember how many thousands of times I redrawn the leafs at the bottom…

Metro Sol (2009)

Acrylic on canvas, 20 x 20 cm

Painted in Madrid, trying to have a couple of paintings ready for a 20×20 exhibition in the art gallery next to my apartment. What I remember the most about this one is the times that I shared my doubts about painting with the lady gallery owner and she kept on telling me: Keep painting!

Gizmo and Moco (2009)

Acrylic on canvas

Painted in Madrid in September 2009.

Purple against white (2010)

Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 81 cm

Painted in Madrid. In an afternoon, with a brush in each hand, one with purple and the other one with white, and tapping both brushes against the canvas at the same time. I remember that couple of hours like fever and effervescence. After finishing it, I decided that it looked better upside down!
