Location: Portugal

I'm a self-taught Portuguese artist who started to paint in 2017, and since then I have had some solo and group exhibitions, and participated in inclusive art festivals.
At this moment, 2020, I'm finishing my Master in Painting in the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon, where I have my studio and produce my artworks, and sometimes I sell some of them through galleries, one in Braga and another in Paris, which help me proceed with artistic life. Through my sculpture paintings, or let's say high reliefs, I create a bestiary in which figures inspired by animals personify ethical, pedagogical and comical scenes sculpted with plaster and colored with enamel paint, that even though elaborated with fantasy reflect true life stories.

Fantastic Creatures

Through my sculpture paintings, or let's say high reliefs, in production since the middle of 2019, I create a bestiary of fantastic creatures, inspired by animals, which personify ethical, pedagogical and comical scenes sculpted with plaster, using a spoon, and colored with enamel paint, that even though elaborated with fantasy reflect true life stories.
