The art depicts the culture of a people.

14- Your plans for the future?

Increasingly improve my work.

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?

Always I sought to study all these years of my life. I never sought to expose or contests because I always thought I had to improve a lot.

16- I have noticed that some traditional galleries are closing activities. Artists are giving preference to exhibit at Cultural Spaces. In your opinion what would be the cause?

Brazilian art has a special touch, and needs to be further explained. If no, will be lost and few will stand out.

Brazilian artist sets out why, I believe the Brazilian customer give more value to artist who exposes abroad.

I think many galleries are losing ground, because today the customers end up having more direct contact with the artist.
