In opposition to the dominant abstract art he preferred objective narrative presentation. His work characterized by figuration tell humorous stories about money, dance, philosophers and women. The transformation of the everyday life in the artistic world, the strong situation pictures are the insinuation of independent and unconventional way of representation characterize the works of artists. Arroyo managed to bind the eye-catching sensual representation technique with subtle artistry.
He began to create sculptures very early. Arroyo binds ready-made familiar objects, such as roof tiles or pieces of iron and connects them in a new and unusual way.
