“I sing, river, with your waters:
Of stone, those who do not cry out.
Of stone, those who do not laugh.
Of stone, those who do not sing.
I will never be stone.
I will shout when I have to.
I will laugh when I have to.
I will sing when I have to.”
RAFAEL ALBERTI (an approximate translation)

Colour and matter are the key elements in the artist’s work, his painting is strongly influenced by abstract expressionism, action painting and the new currents of contemporary art.
