I’m a Brazilian born artist living and working in Sweden and Brazil since many years. I want my art to serve a communicative function in society, to be a conversation and not speech. In order to do this, I seek to break down the barriers which make art seem like something mystical and impossible for ordinary people to understand.

I seek in my art to recognize the existential in everyday life, to achieve a sort of integrity or balance in the individual and society. My work consistently explores the unity of body and soul, the mundane and the spiritual.

We live in an era of ”use-and-throw-away,” in which we achieve an illusion of controlling our physical and inner lives with our purchasing and consumption. The politically correct façade we inhabit becomes a prison, and we have no possibility to distance ourselves from this infinite world of conventional symbols.

 

I often use ordinary objects in my sculptural works, such as domestic objects and transform them into creative representations. I also work with different kinds of disadvantaged people which creates opportunities for them that lead to social action. It can be interpreted as the displacement of these people in another context, not as extras, but interpreters of themselves, which in turn can be a powerful factor in the awakening and improvement of society.

 

Reversing the trend of mass consumption and far from social networks, I examine the ‘culture of excess’ and its changing aesthetics in today’s world, the limits of advertising in the world of liquid modernity (Bauman) and what can be considered as Art.

 

Currently, my work is being structured and cataloged to make more choices in the field of art and culture.
