Biography

Born in Rio de Janeiro - RJ (Brazil), in 1966, began painting at the age of sixteen, in 1983, the Art workshops of São Paulo Cultural Center. I began painting professionally in 1993, encouraged by the painter Luiz Hamen. My art understanding condone the words of Aristotle:

"The purpose of art is to represent not external appearance of things, but their inner significance."

In this case, I understand that the artistic process is primarily a self knowledge process. Knowing the way of his own heart, the artist is able to reach the hearts of those who admire his work.

Despite being a plastic artist, I currently work in the judiciary of Brazil as a means of my financial support.

I currently reside in the Brazilian Amazon region, more precisely in Porto Velho, Rondonia.
