“His visual signature is recognizable, very recognizable, no just recognizable but he also plays with the contents using his way and he got this irony, this hidden smile that appears visually. he sails very comfortable in between complex public spaces and private spaces and he delivers in the same way. He is someone who got the capacity to link to others and to know where to place himself and generate a very solid informal visual structure. For me is 1 or 2.”
