Artist Info

Born in Mozambique in 1947.

Living in Portugal since 1974.

At the start of the millennia, I decided to dedicate myself entirely to painting as a way of life to continue working with joy, passion and creativity, and I started a learning period, which is continuous, with mention to the following:

To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual.
