The artist works on the material in order to depict strength and energy.The subject is only an excuse for the manual study, there is no predominant subject. Paolo Valdes follows his daily thoughts.

His animals pieces combine particularly good with his work on stone, because it allows him to highlight the ferocity and the vitality of this living beings.
