Born in Lisbon (’77). He studies and develops his work around the «psyche». He presents himself as an “almost” illiterate artist, describing his “almost” artistic work as an adornment of “jouissance”. The painting emerges with greater expression in Alentejo [Évora, ‘07] and later returns to his hometown in Lezíria Ribatejana [Coruche, ‘17] where it currently develops its artistic study. The construction of the aesthetic sense of his work is based on the relations between the symbolic, the imaginary and the real. Has held several individual and collective exhibitions, being represented in private collections.

“Recently”, his pictorial work is based on the intersection between disciplines, photography, painting and collage, seeking the (re)creation of the “real” image and the (re)construction of the personal and/or collective imagination.
