"I make of my art the key to freedom, where there are no borders, where people are perfect and where everything is allowed. Where the sky is blue and the sea is crystalline – where love is born at first sight. Where I allow myself to enter so that nothing ceases to exist.
"I am a Brazilian artist born in a Rio de Janeiro suburb. I come from a humble family and it was through my mother's efforts and prompting that I learned the techniques I needed to paint and design. By fourteen years of age I was already fascinated by art – I started designing and gradually passed unto watercolors and eventually unto the canvas. I began painting sets for TV and models for interior décor which allowed me the opportunity to know different materials. I like to paint everything that inspires me. I don't have any preferred themes except that lately I have been developing paintings of feminine figures as a way to pay homage to all the women in the world.
"I believe the most important thing for an artist is to have a space in which to exhibit his work. Novica makes it possible for many artists to become available to different people, of different nationalities. This personal exhibition does much to stimulate an artist's self-esteem and it is essential to stimulate his artistic productivity. Today I tell myself I am a winner, because I can live from my art and because it can be taken anywhere in the world."
