São Caetano do Sul, Brazil - 1985

I majored in Arts at Unesp, and have always had drawing as the drive of my works and researches. Through drawing I seek to dissect the human body and its meanings, representing it with a basic configuration, a quick and almost abstract note. The exercise and exploration of the body is always linked with the empty and aerial space of the blank paper, thus making relative the gravity and weight of this new represented body. Be it on paper, on canvas or on ceramics, the bodies, airplanes, baloons and kites seem to have been built in the brevity of the first look, sending one back to the instant of drawing (see more in the essays “Drawing: Archeology of language” and “Drawing, refining forms”). In Brazil I participated in collective exhibitions in galleries, foundations and museums in São Paulo, Rio de Janero and Bahia. In 2011 I was the youngest participant in the exhibition A Meeting of Continents in Haarlem, The Netherlands, together with renowned artists as Yoko Ono and Sol LeWitt. My works are in private collections in Brazil and several other countries such as Germany, France, The Netherlands, Switzerland, The United States and Uruguay. Together with my artistic production, I work as illustrator (click here to see the portfolio). I live and work in São Paulo.
