What is your background as an artist?

Born in Porto Alegre -RS- Brasil, I grew up in the studio of my parents in and art has become a natural part of my life. I started some activities in 2005, along with the Coletivo Upgrade do Macaco. Later on I took some theoretical and practical art classes. I have had my work displayed in individual and collective exhibitions in Brazil and Taiwan, italy, Spain, USA, and France.

Could you tell us a little about your work, the characters in it and the process you go through?

I work a lot with image appropriation and my process counts on intuition a lot, I have been interested in the process of human transformation, the search for the self, growth and aging
