25 years

In this page, I would like to show you one artwork of each year since 1997 (the last year in art school at La Massana). Maybe, they are not the most known or even the best of my portfolio, however, I have chosen just a representative work of that time. This selection can easily reveal desires, phobia and concerns. I hope you enjoy this time travelling! If you want to comment of just say something, send me a mail to: ecosatori@gmail.com
