Being a visual artist, I work with many mediums, I as contemporary or 21st century "plasticien", my work ranges from tattoo to fine arts, urban art to photography, interior design to jewelry and into illustration. Also extend to involve fashion, including a brief collaboration with Alexander McQueen.
One of main aims of my work is to combine beautiful materials into a pinnacle of ultimate beauty.
For my photography and digital work i use original analog photos from Rio de Janeiro in the 1980's. The result of many years of amateur photographer from Rio's nightlife dance floors, and alternating them i can create images of unique and idyllic women. In the search of the woman that doesn't exist.
