I was influenced by the street art in São Paulo, Brazil, where I was born and raised.
I use acrylic, spray paint and markers, because of the vibrancy of their colors and fast drying time, allowing me to create multiple layers of colors and textures that simulate an urban vibe.
I start by lightly sketching, covering the surface with colors until the shapes start to reveal themselves, and the story begins to form.
The main subjects are usually figurative and iconic images, charged with color and movement.
My intention is to overwhelm the viewer with energy and color, a visual punch to the chest that will take your breath away.
I want to remind the viewer of the energy and power we all have within, and to spark joy and create excitement.
My art is fueled by the thought that life was meant to be enjoyed and celebrated, as is illustrates the experiences and stories we all have in common.
