In 1970 he moved to Buenos Aires where he studied Arts at the Instituto de Arte (IDA). In 1971 he started his career publishing his drawings in children’s magazines at the Editorial Garcia Ferre. In 1974 he moved to Spain, where he lived for fourteen years, and carried on with the same kind of work, this time at the Editorial Bruguera.

In 1977 he joined the Danish company, Egmont Publishing Service, and produced comics at an international level, working with other companies in Germany, Mexico and the U.S.A. at the same time.

In 1985 he returned to Spain and joined the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Palma de Mallorca where he stayed for five years. On the instigation of Maestro Jose Maria de Labra he became passionately involved in the geometrical concept of plastics arts.

In 1991 he became involved with Uruguayan painters, the disciples of Joaquin Torres Garcia. From this moment onwards constructivism was to become an important influence in all his pictorial work. This is still evident today in his work on new techniques and materials.
