Laureate Journalist specialized in audiovisual media (Universidad Central de Venezuela) with postgraduate studies in Contemporary Art and academic formation in Sculpture, Photography, Cinematography, Multimedia Techniques, Radio, Theater Direction, Graphic Design, Venezuelan Art and Cultural Public Policies.
Along with his artistic career has developed an important amount of work as a media and image consultant and audiovisual writer, producer and director for radio, TV and cinema.
The issues of the LGBTI community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) are the main component in his work since 1983 when he produced and directed the first documentary film to address homosexuality in Venezuela.
In 1994 PLANETA published his book Amos de la Noche a collections of interviews to members of the LGBTI community and other minorities and in 1992 his play ALGO OUCRRIO CAMINO A IMPARARE was awarded with the A.N. National Playwright Award.
His video art and artistic films have been awarded Official Selection at several film and video art festivals around the world and exhibited at galleries and art fairs in Venezuela, Europe and USA.
Solo shows of his video art and installation art where held at two important National Contemporary Art Museum in Caracas.
Multimedia is a key word in all his works. Recent examples of this are his involvement as Art Director for the TEATRO TERESA CARREÑO 2011 production of Mozart’s opera COSI FAN TUTTE where video screens substituted all theater scenery and evolved as a new “character” in the plot.
Collaboration is another key of his artistic production since he often works with choreographers, theater directors and other artists to produce multimedia stage work, video art and installations.
He lives and works in New York developing his current projects: T1 – T3 a documentary and video art/photography series focused on the transgender community; The First Time, a choral film and multimedia art collaborative experience with the involvement of 30 other artists, focused on the feelings and experiences of LGBTI artists about the “first time they felt in love”; and ELECTRIC OPERA a multimedia Opera and Theater initiative.
