“I was born in Sao Paulo in 1956 and graduated in Business Administration by Sao Paulo University, having worked as Marketing Executive Officer at big multinationals companies, for over 30 years. Later I got fascinated by the world of arts, especially by the technique of great masters of oil paintings from the Renaissance and by the Surreal style. Over the years, I acquired my knowledge through international travels, art history courses and painting studios, where I could perfect the drawing, the techniques and the creativity. Despite my formation and career being at the Business Administration area, I never stopped painting.

The will to be a plastic artist came in 2005, after having participated in collective halls and exhibitions with the incentive from friends and family, who told me I had a very good work, whether from the creative point of view or from the technical one. From then on, even as market executive, I started to effectively invest in my potential plastic artist career, aiming to make it a profession in the future.

Strongly influenced by Renaissance and Baroque painters such as Raphael, Leonardo Da Vinci and Caravaggio (as for technique), as well as by Contemporaneous (as for style) like Salvador Dalí, Carlos Araújo, Sérgio Ferro, Pierre-Jean Couarraze, Roger Suraud, Vito Campanella, among others. It was observing them and studying, that I reached my pictorial technique and my creative style.

I consider my style as Contemporaneous Figurative, with classical realistic technique of painting in oil on canvas and a thematic that I define as “Fantastic Realism” and that wanders among Classic and Contemporaneous.

The female thematic, trying to show the duality of the feminine soul is something that always fascinated me. For me, it is about a poetic vision about the feminine. I like to contextualize situations and places playing with past and present scenes and places. The water, that for me transmits emotions, is another element very present in my compositions.

My objective is “to talk” with the spectator, through situations that walk between the universe of the ancient and the current or between the interior and exterior, through the timeless figures, surreal emotions and sometimes poetic emotions. Therefore, I consider that my work is intrinsically associated with “feeling” and of poetically marked inspiration.

Anyway, I like to transmit emotions, feelings and questionings through my work and because of that, I believe it is alive… . I like that the spectator discovers slowly the details, stories minutiae that I create and try to impregnate within my works ”
