  • About the Artist

He began his career as a visual artist aged 19. Self-taught, at the start he received orientation from the painter Lise Forell with whom he maintains a relationship of profound friendship until today. His first exhibitions date from 1971 when he carried out an individual exhibition at the Mini Galeria USIS, São Paulo and participated in the collective Bilder aus Brasilien, at the Holtzinger Gallery, Munich, Germany. In 1998, he carried out an exhibition with the support of the Secretaria da Cultura de São Paulo which was also set up in Santos and Curitiba. In 1986, he took part in the exhibition Brazilian Naïve Paintings organized by the Partners of Americas and with the sponsorship of JP Morgan, which itinerated through various North-American cities t hroughout more than 4 years. He was selected to compete in the Naïve Art Contest in Canada in 1993 and 1994 (Gallery Jeaninne Blais) and in Morges, Switzerland in 1983 and 1992 (Galerie Pro Arte Kasper). His paintings are regularly promoted in France by Galerie Jacqueline Bricard, and in Brazil, by Galeria Jacques Ardies, São Paulo.

His themes are basically the city of São Paulo that he portrays in a beautiful and attractive way, with the marine landscapes of our coast where man, usually nude, is represented perfectly integrated within a pure, beautiful and peaceful nature, and life in the slums is shown as a pleasant place to live, filled with children flying kites, cats on rooftops and playful dogs, all highlighted by the use of solid colours in sophisticated gradients of tones.
