Each screen is a class, made of superior mastery, where the light falls to worship no longer while chance, But while intelligence. This is the difference between the color by consciousness and casual. The work of Gonçalo Ivo, Scientist of this art, It's a way of revelation, While not delusional attempt but exactly as pronunciation of Sage that comes closer to what you couldn't see. " Valter Hugo Mãe.
