With his research 108 distances himself from the street art label, and overs the years has concentrated heavily on form and color as fundamental elements of the pictorial language, creating large abstract figures.

“For this piece I wanted to create a synthesis of my artistic research, concentrating on shape, or rather, the metaphysical structure of these architectural spaces. A sort of respect toward the beauty of abandoned spaces, consumed over time. Using bright color would have been disrespectful, out of place, and inelegant.”

His enormous black spots generate a sensation of interior conflict. They contain an emptiness that emanates its intrusive presence wherever one looks. They are a conceptual oxymoron given that the irrational and formless shapes have, at the same time, a resemblance to both primordial markings and contemporary forms. His abstract figures also contain imperfections, small erratic drippings that create collateral elements of disturbance. That which disturbs us is that which is unknown and incomprehensible, that which ultimately brings us toward reflection and contemplation, which fully occurs with these works.
