I am a junk collector. I can't help it. Every object, every image and piece of paper that goes into my paintings and collages have a special meaning for me. Actually, I believe they have a mission: to become an artwork.
I am fascinated by the imperfection, the spontaneous, the "non-professional look" and the chance.
So far, I've had the experience to live in three cities that influenced me a lot: Sao Paulo, London and New York. All of them are eccentric, weird and special places.
Among the hundredes of artists who are important and who have influenced me are: Picasso, Basquiat, Cy Twombly, Rauschenberg, Kienholz, Peter Blake, Kurt Schwitters, Walker Evans.
