He is an important member of the “new generation of Venezuelan Kinetic Art”, a genre based on the aesthetic of the real and the virtual movement in geometric abstraction.

He is inspired by kinetic art international great masters, such as Yaacov Agam, Victor Vasarely, Jesús Rafael Soto, and Carlos Cruz-Diez. He reaches his own new dimension creating an innovative reading for the geometric art genre.
