in the words of the artist
With the experience of recent years in international symposia and having participated in the realization of monumental sculptures in public spaces, I have been able to appreciate with great satisfaction how the neighbors and visitors of the area where I work are involved with the creative process.
For example during the realization of the last work in stone that I did in the "Art al Carrer" festival held in Sant Adrià de Besòs, in addition to having constant monitoring of the neighbors, the process generated real gatherings around the work and many people got involved in such a way with my work, that they spent their time discussing the possibilities of finishing and even the name that the work should carry; I consider this
something extraordinary because the response of the public exceeded my expectations and
also that of the organizers of the event.
