Dissatisfied with a work that did not go well with his temperament, he decided to come back to Zaragoza two years later, devoting himself to Art in its different disciplines. In Zaragoza, he made acquaintance with Miguel Labordeta, Manuel Derqui, Pilar Bayona and Alfonso Buñuel. With the latter, he became familiar with Luis Buñuel´s books, movies, documents and objects, approaching both of them to the Surrealist movement, being Alfonso his first master in the art of collage. During the 40s, he began his studies of Philosophy in Zaragoza. In 1944 he attended the Fifth Summer School of the Oviedo University as a resident student.

In 1967, he married Ellen Marie Branchini, also a professor with a doctorate (Ph.D.) from Yale, and they have twin daughters, Linda and Alicia. Besides the research works on Literature and Music, and his three books of collages, the book that best defines his art and personality is Ciudadano del mundo, (Citizen of the world), self-published anthology that brings aphorisms, poems, short stories, puzzles and caligramas.
