I live in a mountainous region close to the city of São Paulo: Serra da Cantareira. This region is considered one of the largest urban forests in the world. In this region, time and space are different. The colors are vivid, the sound is pure, the smell is of the bush and the sky is a spectacle every new day. It is where I create and am raised. The Contrastes Series pays homage to the sunrise and sunset that fascinate me every day.

I am passionate about lines, colors and shapes.
In my art I try to find a bridge between straight lines and the sensitivity of art.
Transforming geometric shapes into art is my biggest challenge. I seek a new vision for geometrism that goes beyond colors and shapes. Sometimes I look for an organic sense for these lines. If everything in the universe is mathematical, there is mathematics in everything, including the curved lines of nature.
I bring within my art profound questions about the universe we know and especially the one we don't know. Imagining the universe as something mathematical and materializing these questions is part of my quest.
I believe that everything is energy. We emanate energy. This energy is felt inside and outside of us ... it is like a clothes we wear but we cannot see it. I like to paint the energy.
I work with layers of transparency showing the idea of energy, movement and infinity. Sometimes dozens of layers. Other unique layers.
My work varies between pure geometric shapes in combinations of diptics, triptych and quadratytics and at other times in more organic and colorful works.
I like to work with cheerful colors and unusual combinations but I am also passionate about monochromatic works.
I live in one of the largest urban forests in the world: in the middle of the Atlantic Forest, in the Serra da Cantareira, in São Paulo. I am surrounded by the green of the forest, the blue of the sky and the beauty of the flowers during the 365 years of the year. I like to put these colors in some of my artwork. It is part of what I am.
