With the artistic name Nark, he started illegally in graffiti leaving his mark mostly in lettering.

Gradually, his work evolved and was admired with the passage to create large murals, masterpieces that executes with technique and speed. Currently, his graffiti works are mostly private and public commissions, or interventions of a social nature for which he makes willingly and whenever requested (social quarters, associations and schools) the interventional and social side that he likes to maintain. Currently he mainly focuses on portraits. His taste for the arts also includes his profession as a conservation and restoration technician, with a post graduate degree in interior conservation and rehabilitation, carrying out stucco works with a vast curriculum.

Nark admires artists who use traditional techniques and always tries to leave their work as it was intended for future generations. These multiple interests make him disperse which carries out works to exhibit and sell in galleries with various supports.
