My Stay in different places in the Disko Bay área, situated on the north coast in the center, west of Greenland, Kalaallit Nunaat, while living closely with the Inuit town. I will allow myself to show a graphic representation of this special environment.
Focusing on the civilians and landscape, in the Inuit culture, its people, arts and industries, at sea, on the coast, icebergs, representing them in form of graphite/sketches, using different color pencils, watercolor and ink.
Finally, with all the material photographed and filmed, I will add the finishing touches, making oil paintings, acrylics and watercolor to finish exhibiting these works in legal spaces, along with a book published about travels and other fairy tales...
Qeqertersuaq is found at the entrance of the Disko Bay, where I will do whatever I can to board a fish boat so that I can be closer to the civilians, moving through the sea and gazing at its extreme beauty and its coasts
26 days in the Artic during March and April learning about the civilians and absorbing country side. When I return, I will work so that I am able to hand in the rewards in the first week of June.

The rewards that I offer are original works, sketches in watercolor, graphite, oil paintings, publications, children’s book and one from the journey, also the last number, 12 of fanzine VIPERA
Who am I
I’ve been an artist ever since I could remember. Since my first sketches, I’ve never stopped creating.
At a very early age I attended plastic art workshops at José Antonio Sistiaga in San Sebastián, Spain. After that, there were more workshops.
In 78, I created and edited the “fanzine”, VIPERA
Since the middle of the 70s, I have journeyed five continents writing numerous travel books.
After 85 I started to paint and make ready – mades, exhibiting them until 92 when I created MB study, a team that designs and makes ingenious scenography, fictitious, sculptures, themes……for big and small brands.
At the moment, I dedicate all my professional time to plastic arts.
