Professional gouache (Talens extra-fine colors, gold and silver gouache) and watercolor s/ 100% cotton paper (Daler-Rowney).

After a visit to Portugal, discovering some of the roots of Brazil, I was impressed with the colorism and geometric forms of Portuguese tiles, of traditional Middle Eastern origin, as seen in the Gulbenkian Museum.

Knowing that the search for geometrism in Arab and Mozarabic constructions aims at a metaphysical perception of the Divinity, symbolized in geometric art, and seeking to drink in the traditional sources that originated this perspective of art, I produced a series that I called "Portuguese", but Which besides being Portuguese, has oriental inspiration.

I hope you like it!
