Javier's art is best known for creating a new medium using scrap paper with burned and cut edges. His inner pyromaniac emerged while studying for finals in law school when a lighter and scrap piece of paper came together to create something cool. The first few times Javi played around with the lighter he simply created interesting shapes and edges and thought nothing of it. After a few of these had stacked on top of each other another brain wave hit him, and it had nothing to do with the Constitutional Law textbook he was cannibalizing for his new art form. A few months later after a lot of trial and error he created his first piece of burned paper art. This first piece was all white and is entitled "Drift" and can be found on the Paper Art page.
Javi isn’t one to shy from new ventures, having attended medical school followed by law school, his true passion has always been in creation. Javi expresses his creativity and passion for science and medicine as a biotechnology and medical device patent attorney.
