He obtained a Fine Arts degree in Seville and, since the 1980s, has been participating in collective multidisciplinary exhibitions and tirelessly working with dance and theatre groups. One of the key themes of his artistic interest is time in its historical, biological, psychological, and verbal aspects. His work has been shown in exhibitions at the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, the MACBA in Barcelona, the Venice Biennale, and the Sculpture Center of Nova York, among other centres. He has also curated exhibitions on Manuel Ocaña and Joan Brossa. As an art and theatre critic, he writes for the “El Cultural” section of the daily Diario de Sevilla and “Babelia” of El País and, in some of his most recent essays about the history of art, he has written about such figures as Helios Gómez, Josep Torres Campalans, and Vicente Escudero. Since 2000, he has been working on the projects Archivo FX and Máquina P.H., using material that is iconoclastic and flamenco-related, respectively. One of his latest projects has taken the form of the documentary Flamenca Barcelona, in which he follows the traces of flamenco in the city. In 2020 he was awarded the ACCA Prize for Research by ACCCA, the Catalan Association of Art Critics, in recognition of his discursive and researcher talents as a curator.
