I consider myself lucky to have a profession Where I can work with my hands, mind, and heart.
Like most, if not all artists, the start is always a big struggle. People often regard art solely as a hobby, underestimating its potential for a worthy and dignified career. I consider myself lucky to have a profession where I can work with my hands, mind, and heart. Art has great power in surrounding everything with beauty, just look at theatre, cinema, music, painting, or sculpturing. To be frank, I couldn’t imagine the world without it.
After an international career that lasted more than 20 years, with many exhibitions, interviews, and international partnerships, it can happen that you just start being regarded as a public figure.! never decided to be an influencer, it just happened to be the case, but at the end of the day, I am an artist.
I have many works that I love, but I would pick one I dedicated to my home-country I called “Think Brasil’. It means a lot to me because inside you see rivers, the sea, forests, and the sky of my land. It is a piece that I exhibited for the first time in Paris, at the National Salon des Beaux-Arts at the Louvre, which was first led by Renoir. Then it was also presented at the 54th Biennale di Venezia.
However, with Giorgio Collection I also have a partnership with Swarovski that allowed me to create works that were inspired by rivers, waterfalls, marbles, e precious minerals as you can see in “Stardust”, “Black Forest”, and “Quarzi and Black”.
They are available at the Italian design brand of luxury furniture, design and art Giorgio for example, in the stores at Harrods in London or Casa Ricca in Moscow, among many others in the world.
Mother nature is wonderful, we have displays of nature around us at all times, from seas to rivers, waterfalls to rocks,marbles, mountains, trees, flowers, snow. It’s almost like a daily show, sitting in front of all of us at all times. It seems so simple to the point where many take it for granted and ingore its beauty.
As I said, nature inspires my work tremendously. I am from the Sertao region in Brazil, a dry land full of cactuses, rocks, sand, and the river San Francisco. Maceio, the capital of my region, on the other hand, made me fall in love with the sea. walking around the coast drinking coconut water while watching surfers cut through the waves.
Now that I live in Italy. I’m looking for the same things, and even if they are a little different. There are signs of nature all around and that’s enough for me. Nature helps me stay with calm and it is a constant source of inspiration.
