Some of his works include ‘Persistence of time’, ‘The metamorphosis of Narcissus’ and ‘Apparition of Face and Fruit Dish on a Beach’ His art works commonly contained images of armies of ants –which are said to represent death. They also contained images of melting soft clocks-which are said to represent the irrelevance of time in a dream like state. His parents told him that he was a reincarnation of his brother who died 9 months before he was born. He attended fine art school at the Academy of San Fernando, which he was expelled from after he claimed that no one at the school was fit to examine him.
