He arrived in Europe in the ’60s, after graduating from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes in Honduras. In Spain, Barcelona he established his workplace and hub, from where he could travel to the neighboring countries, mainly France.

On his return in 1988, his painting was already final, codified in theme and style “through the creation of images such as fruit or Mediterranean barroque flowers …” according to the historian Leticia Oyuela.
