About Graffiti Art

My work is born both from an observation and introspection experience, and it is a very special pleasure because I see in these paintings often born from the night obscurity through which my thoughts flow, the light of the vital balance reached via spiritual serenity.

The lights, the images I create are more than a place but of a revival. These images are coming from a combination of intimate transformations in the subconscious which I dared to visit, and so they emerge with internal harmony and a decided will of sharing, with places, cities, people, after all the safety of a journey.

The city is restless as it is the human existence, however, if I learn and understand its change, I will certainly reach the harbor of duty duly accomplished.

I studied art in the Sociedade Nacional de Belas Artes, Graphic Design in Arco, Lisbon, and Watercolors techniques at the Hearthley School of Fine Arts in London.

In my former life worked hard as sales management executive. I learned hard.

However always kept my spiritual, and artistic goals first.

Today, I keep my priorities:

  1. Helping my community,
  2. Keep family together and continue to develop my art skill, on a personal mission!
  3. I’m only interested in earning money through conscious, heart-centered business practices. Abundance through integrity. It’s the only way.

Look very formal?

Believe me, I´m not!!
