In 1977 he was chosen "Artist of the Year" by the newspaper El Pais of Montevideo, and selected for the Figari Award by the Uruguayan Central Bank in 1995.
Although his paintings have a metaphysical air, their issues are not disconnected from reality. In general the world is plausible. Somehow it's a landscape of mountains and land without buildings, but in imposing the heavens and the subdued topography of the surface allows the air blue mass, perforated only by the moon, obtain an overwhelming weight. He orders the landscapes in a controlled manner, with harmony and rhythm in the vegetation and animals. His works are displayed in the Art Museum of Madrid, the National Museum of Visual Arts
