Returns to Barcelona, and after an exhibition at the Syra Gallery, embarks himself in a phase of action painting, featuring contrasts and violent explosions with predominant use of blacks and whites .1964 – 1965 Creates a series of five lithographs used by the publisher Gustavo Gili to launch the collection Les Estampes de la Cometa, which in the same are exhibited at the Renè Mètras Gallery in Barcelona, and are awarded the Maribor Prize at the VI International Engraving Biennial in Ljublijana. 1966 – 1967 The new series of lithographs Las Celdas is awarded at the I International Engraving Biennial in Krakow. The artist’s drawing stroke turns now into a geometrical and anatomical element. He is focusing his interests in empty spaces and the relations between the space and the objects around it. He gravitates towards still life by incorporating a section of an apple, an egg or a cup. Generally isolated, these objects give the space a metaphysical dimension.
