He has participated in several individual and collective exhibitions in Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Australia, Canada and the United States. When asked about how he was inspired to fulfill his dreams till becoming a professional artist he said: "God gave me this incredible talent and put me in an exotic land where many vibes and cadences could be sensed over long distances, where I could hear the Mockingbirds sing and where I could smell the fragrances of the blossoms in the air. I got my inspiration to conceive my first paintings from the natural forces of the Ruiz Volcano." More info
