The professional and academic path in Architecture has been structured and developed in parallel with the Arts, defining a straight connection with it. The artwork developed since 2011 is based on structuring forms and colors in a way that they form a still image of a “subject” in motion. This “subject” – the main focus of the painting - can be an emotion, a meditative state, a personal situation occurred or simply a thought or an idea that suddenly appears in the canvas and it’s demanding for a physical existence.
Lives and works in Porto, Portugal.
