Stories make us human. Everyday I stumble upon hundreds of stories waiting to be told. My work is to collect them, share them and squeeze out the juice to the last drop. Like lime on my tacos.

I am a Mexican / German visual artist and storyteller based in Berlin. Im about to start my last semester of Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, where I specialised in Film and Illustration. I like to create worlds and tell stories with a focus on strong visuals. I am a fan of the surreal and grotesque. I spend a lot of my time searching for inspiration in art history.

Dich suche Ich.

For a couple of months I spent hours searching for personal ads in newspapers and online. Some of them turned out to be not only funny but actually told a story. After reading them I just let the brush do the rest.
