A disciple of renowned Argentinian artist Axel Amuchastegui, Campos's disarming artwork has traveled the world for both temporary and permanent display.
Art critic and poet Rafael Squirru:
"Looking at Campos' work, no matter the techniques used, implies getting into a world which goes round the edge of magic thanks to its realism. These paintings seem to emerge from the sudden evocation of somebody who has conclusive words capable of making animals appear, as a genie from "Arabian Nights" may appear.
"Campos has a vocation as serious as inspired, to remind us that art is not a trinket, a "show" or just "amusement."
