Artist statement

Imaginary evocation to origin.

Atomika began in 2001 as a series of original ink illustrations with a strikingly metaphysical sensory experience of its own. The atom would become my pen and my compositions my organised information that gave rise to Atomika’s own universe and graphic style.

Over 400 imaginary pieces have evolved since then combining mixed media techniques from original pure pencil work, black pen ink drawings, photography, collage, watercolour and digital effects.  The extensive series became precise material, which I strongly believe have a future, not only as a solid book but also as an animated short film project.

Here are only a few plates showing a glimpse of this geometric visual adventure and mutual alchemy.
