Artist Interview – Art and life!

Yesterday I was interviewed by Mariana at Andreus Galeria, we had such a nice conversation and I’d like to invite you to listen!

The interview covers a lot of aspects of who I am as a person and artist and if you are curious about me, my art journey, why I changed from a safe career as an executive to a life as an artist, what life crisis actually brought more life to my art, what motivates me to create, my way to adapt to the pandemic and how it has injected more ideas to my art, my current challenges and dreams, which I think can resonate with a lot of other artists, please check it out! I even had some time to speak about some paintings in particular to explain my process and vision with my art. So you can get the story behind some of my favorites!

The interview can be found on my IgTV (or click on the image in the beginning to watch within the post) :

The initiative where artists offers a piece of art where the sales go to buy “cestas básicas”(kits with food and essentials) to women in vulnerable situation in the favelas, helping them and their family. Every artist then calls other artists to participate to create a positive wave of donations.
