Río de Janeiro, Brazil, 1964.
Educated by his mother, a landscaper, she introduced him to ideas related to the therapeutic value of art.
At the beginning of the 90's, he evolved towards a different spiritual language. His early works included hand-sewn objects, or polyp shapes, suspended, created by filling lycra with lead, polyester balls, rice, earth or aromatic spices such as lavender, cloves or turmeric. With these materials, he refers to his ancestors of neo-concrete and Arte Povera.
In 1998 he made his first rooms of material, stretching membranes of lycra tulle to create walls, ceilings and floors to create a gallery. In this way he invites the spectators to enter barefoot, to enter and move through the cavities evoked by the matrix, interiors of churches, sailing boats or space ships.
At the end of the 90's he added soft monoliths to his repertoire.
Continuing with his exploration of the narrative capacity of sculpture, his most recent work addresses culture and experience from a cellular level to the imaginary, from the micro to the macrocosm. He explores our perception of colour and space as nothing remains fixed or static, everything reacts to the laws of physics and to the actions of the visitors.
He lives and works in Río de Janeiro.
