He states, "Since I started my studies in plastic arts, I have been interested in figuration. I use traditional technics such as charcoal, graphite, oil, acrylic and temple. For my engraving work, I use xylography, intaglio printing, and lithography.
I am into human figure its representation, so my artwork exalts feminine and masculine figures. I seek to articulate and represent the inner drama of close persons of mine, to make visible their hidden characteristics and to discover their mystical side. Therefore, the product of my work is a mix of technics that allow different interpretations." - Ivan Bautista

Each art piece is made by hand using a technique called block printing which involves hand carving the desired art work onto a large block, covering that design in ink or dye, and stamping it onto the fabric or canvas. While blocks could be made from stone and other strong natural materials, they were most commonly made of wood.
