Description

Oil on cotton canvas. Only professional oil paint (Schmincke Mussini, Grumbacher, etc.)

As a self-taught artist, I learned many techniques by myself, and others with the help and encouragement of some friendly artists who gave me some tips on how to work.

I decided to follow the maxim of a fellow painter, called Helenos, that art should seek to elevate man from his routine, in the sense of provoking inner peace in him.

Oil on cotton canvas. Only professional oil paint (Schmincke Mussini, Grumbacher, etc.)

As a self-taught artist, I learned many techniques by myself, and others with the help and encouragement of some friendly artists who gave me some tips on how to work.

I decided to follow the maxim of a fellow painter, called Helenos, that art should seek to elevate man from his routine, in the sense of provoking inner peace in him.

I live in the Amazon region, in Brazil. And whenever I enter the forest, in this region, it seems to me that the sense of a "Order in Chaos" comes. As I enter the heart of the forest, it seems that I enter into my own heart.

So I tried to bring some of this inner peace into this work. And a bit of how I see the forest, which has a characteristic green color, but which expresses a colorful, joyful and terrible life at the same time, and a little mysterious.

This picture, which was painted due to an order, has this meaning.

Some people say I'm naive. I do not care about this classification. I like to express what I am in the art I produce, using that expression as a form of interior improvement.
