BURNINGMAX ART

ALL PROJECTS TIMELINE

A timeline presentation of all projects by Burningmax.

More than 30 years on a creative path, and many projects that deserve to be remembered, before time cancels everything. I just needed to put them in order, and the easiest way to explore them is the chronological way. Enjoy.
