I am a mixed media and collage artist. Modified and painted collage has always been part of my process and a long-term research. I lived in London, Rio and Sao Paulo before and have always had a passion for symbols, pop culture, advertising, fashion, design, billboards, brand images, etc. Apart from the Internet, I use various sources of images, including taking close shots of my own paintings and reusing them, as well as photographs I take during my long walks, looking for derelict murals and buildings (so many interesting details), graffiti, or any other sign of the great cultural artists out there, who are in the forefront on graffiti and street art culture and whose work still influence or inspire me every single day of my journey.
My paintings have a huge flux of visual information, as well as a skilled treatment of the surface. It is a painstaking process, which takes up to three weeks to finish a painting. A closer look reveals fine details and an incredible pictorial surface.
I live and work in Miami, but I am always on the move.
