About

Painter, living in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Statement

"For me, painting is about the very nature of light, and an artwork is, essentially, a statement of beauty. Beauty, here, not superficially limited to the worldly concept of perfection of shape or to a bodily ideal. But in the sense that art can use form to transcend the form itself. I’m a self-taught painter. Although this, I’ve always been intensely interested in painting techniques. I think that devotion to craftsmanship enable us, when it comes to painting, to uncover the sense of what seems to be concrete. I’m especially drawn to depictions of flesh and skin."
