Tango was born on the marshy banks of the Rio de la Plata, in the suburbs of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Montevideo (Uruguay), during the last quarter of the 19th century. Because of emigration from many countries. Many Spanish and Italians, but also a very significant wave of immigration of Germans, Hungarians, Arabs and Jews. All these emigrants will form an uprooted working class, poor, and with few means of communication between them because of the language barrier, and mostly male. Due to the chronic lack of women - 75% of the population is male -, idle men dance among themselves. They draw inspiration from their traditional dances to invent new figures while imitating, to pastiche them, the local Picaresque dances and especially the rhythmic dances of the blacks inherited from the African candombé and the Cuban habanera, the latter itself being already a version imitated by the former black slaves of the contradance of their Spanish masters. The dance gradually codifies itself by generating more and more sophisticated figures. Began to appropriate dance and introduce it to the bourgeois brothels in downtown Buenos Aires.

Since my childhood I have always been very influenced by art. Thanks in particular to my father who was an art teacher and to my brothers who also worked in painting. I have always loved and been attracted to cars and the details of their design. So at the age of fifteen, I decided to study automotive design. I trained in this branch in Guadalajara (Mexico) before leaving a few months later for Germany. Two years later I moved to France, the country in which I currently live. I decided to pursue my career in art but this time in a slightly different way to what I was doing previously. I started to paint some paintings, to express my ideas differently and no longer only in the automotive field. Today I make drawings and paintings around themes that are dear to me, such as Mexican culture, my country of origin. I am more inspired by my culture since I have been living abroad and want to share it through my paintings. So I continue to learn new things and different techniques. It allows me to surpass myself every day while doing what I like. I changed path but no goal.
