Artistic style

Artista03 21 LobosSable jpg

I would describe my heraldic artistry with three terms: clarity, symbolism, and methodology.

  • It is clear because my work aims to create pieces that transmit energy and vital force to the owner and their relatives. I believe that a coat of arms should be a source of light and joy and an expression of freedom. That's why, in my heraldic creative process, I prefer drawing inspiration from the early stages of heraldic history to bring that freshness into the present.
  • It is symbolic because coats of arms must represent their bearer, his/her ideals, goals, motivations, history, and anything he/she might want to display. Thus, the creation of a coat of arms should encompass all the meanings and symbols brought forth by the future owner, in accordance with heraldic rules and artistic contributions.
  • It is methodical because heraldic art is founded on a science, the so-called «science of heraldry». This systematic knowledge has its principles, its composition rules, and its own formal language, all of which are the true foundations of my artistic methodology. The method should not be seen as a deterrent to creativity, but rather as a solid support and a guarantee of professional work.

This brief description of my artistic style is elaborated on in the following series of articles, where I provide a broader insight into my methodology, my artistic techniques, and my journey both artistically and personally.
