Born in 1985 in Bettembourg in Luxemburg and currently lives in Santiago de Chile, his mother country. Since 2010 the artist has seen his style grow to use a more than original medium: masking tape. Like a surgeon, he operates his works with a scalpel, cutting characters with precision to examine this symptom of light that is shadow. The iconographic universe of the artist lies in the search for beauty extricated from everyday life, “snatching its epic side from life” to quote Baudelaire, and this with a few means. Carlos Rivera understands his creations as spectra, “fantasms” to be related to the Spanish translation.
