"I belonged to the 'Impublicáveis' - a group that sought to break with formalism and shorten the distance between art and the public."
"I am a designer and artist, graduated in 1994 from the Pontifícia Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. In 1989, I entered the Urian Agria Free Studio of Drawing and Painting of Souza, to engage in the creative process proposed by the master. From 1990 to 1992, I belonged to the 'Impublicáveis' - a group that sought to break with formalism and shorten the distance between art and the public. The group organized expositions in such accessible locations as the beach, fairs and pilot projects.
"In 1992 I participated in the collective exhibit '70 Years of Modern Art – Non-Commercial Project' in Rio de Janeiro. In 1993 I began frequenting Tereza Miranda's engraving shop and participated in the 'Students of Tereza Miranda Exhibit' – a collective show of engravings in the Solar Grandjean de Montigny (Rio de Janeiro). In 1995 I was invited to exhibit in the 'Surf Simulator Classes' from the Rio de Janeiro School of Design (Sony Galery, Rio De Janeiro).
"Since 1991, I have practiced, researched and developed an artistic view of capoeira, a popular form of martial arts. To make my work known, I created different tee shirt prints that became popular with capoeiristas. Between 1995 and 1997, I founded a studio and painted decorative and fashion textiles. In 1996 I worked in the Imperatriz Leopoldinense School of Samba. In 1998 I traveled in northeast Brazil, where I taught classes in creativity and visual communication to public schools students on the outskirts of Fortaleza. Since 1999 I have worked as consultant in communication and design graphic lending service."
