Since 1998 with his first solo exhibition "Esencia del paisaje" (San Salvador), his artworks have been exhibited in some countries like El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Mexico and United States. He is considered by some art critics and galleries as one of the most important landscape painters in Central America. Since 1997 his paintings have been exhibiting in important Art collection across Central America.
The theme of nature in his artwork , sometimes a tropical rainforest, some other times a pine tree forest, is perhaps of the most important element in his personal discovery through Art.
Some of his paintings themes come from his imagination, mainly from landscapes from Latin America. Usually his paintings are detailed and tend to hyperrealism but he considers himself just only as "landscape painter with a touch of realism".
His latest paintings from 2010, are also with painted with impressionism brushstrokes, a tribute to impressionism art.
