During that period, Vazquez used ceramics as a media of artistic expression, exhibiting his works in diverse galleries in Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Uruguay. In 1980 he moved to Miami, Florida, where he is currently living. Since then, he is dedicated to the design of artistic furniture and works in third dimensions, using an innovative technology created by himself. At the end of 1994, he started traveling to several countries of Latin America and Spain. Generated by a new state of mind , he created new art works which reflect his new ideas . His new creations are full of energy. The surrealistic style permits us to find feelings from the Apocalypses and also related to birth. Every piece is a narrative structure that carries us to an act of self-re flection.
The series "Television and Human Being", presented for the first time at the Florida Museum of Hispanic and Latin American Art in Miami, Florida, is the fundamental part of the exhibition "Realism-Surrealism". It will be also shown in other prestigious galleries, art fairs and other cultural events.
