It all starts in the mental, after a brief study of the composition of the work: colors, characters, environment and others. My inspiration is always present, I see and think like art.

At the beginning, every artist has a reference to create, experience the creative process that interests you, but when he starts to master the techniques, the path is personal, unique and singular.
9- What does art mean to you? If you were to summarize in a few words the meaning of the Arts in your life ...
Everything in the world is born from the creativity of an artist. Everything in the world came from art.

Currently, oil painting in mixed technique with oxidized iron powder, has been an expression language, figurative hour, abstract hour.

I've done it all, but time is short and I have many ideas to create. So I left everything for the art of painting.

I don't believe in the future or the past, my thinking is quantum. I believe in the here and now, where infinite possibilities are favorable… as for the rest “I deliver to the universe”.
15- In your opinion what is the future of Brazilian art and its artists? (in the general context) and why so many artists are giving preference to show their work in international exhibitions despite high costs?
There is a lot of misinformation in all contexts of human life, art is not always what they say about it, nor what is expected of her. In my opinion if you are an “excellent artist” and you know what you do; and makes the difference between so many, the art market comes to you, no matter where you are your art will be seen appreciated and desired. Art is like love, you don't look?! She comes on your date.
