In 2003 he received the Ángel Award in 2006 performed at the Palacio Revillagigedo of Gijón a retrospective of a period of ten years. In 2008 he did a solo exhibition at MNCARS a job photographing light and geometry interventions carried out directly on the landscape.

In 2010 he exhibits in the Museum Barjola an intervention on the landscape adapted to the specific space of the room, which first introduced the time course of his work. In recent years continues to investigate the relationship between landscape and geometry, understood as prior to matter, able to establish with her a kind of subtle and revealing hidden qualities in the spaces resonance working language. With its sample of Valencia in 2012 leaps to public space, which is treated, for the first time by the artist, as an exhibition stage, through installation outdoors where the light projections directly affect vegetation of the Turia Gardens.
