This artwork is painted with acrylic colors on canvas. To realise my paintings I work with artbrushes, sponges, wet sanding paper, an old toothbrush and a sieve. I developed an especial technique of constructive and destructive painting processes. A work of mine - depending on the transparency of each color - contains between 80 and 120 layers, including the Gesso-Ground.
