A while ago I started wondering about the importance of weeds in nature and why people take whatever method to get rid of them, including me, I guess this is what our society thought me to do.

It all started while walking in my overgrown garden when I saw weeds flowering when I realized how beautiful these little plants are, specially when blooming. There were so many types, such a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors.

This of course led me to start a new series of paintings, properly titled “Weeds.” But it was a slow start, these little plants started to show up in other paintings before these series, sort of an integration to the compositions I was working at that time, until eventually bloomed into its own series.
