Insta 009 (2018)
I am a self-taught artist, inspired by the simplicity, practicality, style, colors and light of the Scandinavian culture.
And also very inspired by the energy of Ironman distance triathlon, with its fusion of styles, and the different colors, lights, and scenes that you go through when training in the sea, in the mountain or along the coast.
I like the clash between the abstract and the numbers, between the diffuse and controlled lines, between the curves and the calculations.
For years I have been painting a big paintwork every two or three years but in 2017 I felt it was time to express everything that I have inside.
The artists who have most influenced in what I do today and how I present my art, are: Carla Sá Fernandes, Ronald Hunter and Niki Hare.
