Being born in 1982 in Brazil and grew up in an artistic family of photographers, musicians and journalist I found my love for drawing at an early age. Moving to (Western) Europe at 27 was a shock and I felt that the climate, culture, and mentality drained a lot of my creative energy. This was only revived by changing the way I express myself artistically and would eventually fill in everything that I’d left in Brazil. It would keep me on my path of looking at the positive side in every aspect of life. With my paintings, I’d like to show you that all emotions and people can be beautiful and give energy as long as they are put in the right (colorful) context.
I am constantly looking for the best combinations of color to match every single portrait and therefore every painting is unique in terms of the colour pallet. I found that the use of acrylics and big pieces give the contrast and emotional conflict I’m hoping to give to my audience.
