The complexity and the multiple facets of the global world are my main fundamentals. Resorting to the paradox, contrariety, criticism or irony, what I do is unfold the reality, individual and collective, which is common to us, reconfiguring it in the plan of the canvas. Along my journey as a painter, I have also developed ways of communication with different cultures, as well as other areas, particularly the music and their players.
Projects like "Written Paintings" and "Pangea"- vídeo, currently in progress, involving entities and singers from 26 countries, they gave me the pleasure of collaboration of Kepa Junkera, Pauline Oliveros, Peter Ablinger, Gianluigi Trovesi, Robert Rich, Eurico Carrapatoso, Amélia Muge or António Victorino d'Almeida, among many others.
