Art is an intellectual production exquisite, where emotions are embedded in the context of creation, but in art history, we see that many artists are derived from other, following technical and artistic movements through time, you own any model or influence of any artist? Who would be?

I started getting a lot of comments on social networks about my language dialogue with Jean-Michel Basquiat (USA), Adebyobholji (London) and other. I have been searching and I felt flattered and love with all of them.

What does art mean to you? If you were to summarize in a few words the meaning of Arts in your life…

It represents the most legitimate and without limits of being the divine-human place in this plan.

Through paintings, texts, sculptures and affections.

Hold exhibitions around the world, and take the dialogue of my research for environments where only art can access.

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?

Every collapse promotes evolution. The art in the country needs to create its own identity. Keep incoming influences, but jump to be the reference itself. In General, I feel we are heading for it. But it takes even more identification with what we are and produce.

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?

I feel this sad scenario is, in part, reflection of a crisis on the national scene and also an opportunity for new formats to make and manage art and artists of new formats. I believe in art. I believe in Brazil. We continue!
