1965-1985: From Figure to Abstraction

During my childhood and adolescence, the sculpture was and essential part of my playtime (see “My childhood pasttimes). Around that time, I learned some traditional techniques, speding my summers from 1965 to 1961, at the  Luján Pérez School, where I was taught by the sculptor Abraham Cárdenes Afterwards, and although my university degree was in Architecture, my artistic training was self-taught. Even so, my creative adventure did not begin until I was 16, and it was not until 1968 that I started the pieces I presented at my first solo exhibition in Madrid (1971).
