Hello. I hope you are welcome to my place here in PCC.
I’m artist, illustrator and collagist based in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
I start my work with photography first at university and then later my interest evaluated to video and video art. Then I specialized in animation and motion graphics. And just after all of that I turned out my view to collage, which was a love at the first sight.
My art references and study are Picasso, Magritte, Grete Stern, Hanna Hock, William Kentridge, Sigmar Poke, Raoul Hassman.
In these days Eduardo Recife, Emannuel Polanco, David Carson and Isabel Herguera.
In my site you can find some of my artworks, some commissioned work, one short movie I made about my childhood and some ultrashortmovies, that are 30s animation films about different themes.
I think collage can open the doors of your subjectivity to surrealistics words, dreams, colors and characters which live inside your mind. Long life to the art of collage.
