His videodelirios are delusional visual stream in which iconoclasm hand and pornography, and bestiality CINEFAGIA, sensuality and zen occur.
Photomontages and Rod videocollages can entroncarse in the tradition of snipers who questioned the foundations of art and cinema classics, through experimental film, collage and found footage, breaking the rules and trying to explore the hidden truth images.

Their approach is based on a sensitivity curd punk philosophy of “do it yourself” in Buñuelismo and minimalist aesthetics and ethics (less money is more creativity) wonderful movies of Serie B. The artist creates his works practicing appropriation and double bond (communicative situations in which we received different or contradictory messages) paying a path for reflection and meta-artistic senses promiscuity
