My Story

I live and work in São Paulo, where I graduated and finished Master degree in visual poetics at Escola de Comunicações e Artes, University of São Paulo. I’m part of Atelie Fidalga since 2007. Have participatedi in shows in Washington DC, Berlin, Porto and in Brazilian museums such as Paço das Artes, MAC USP, Pinacoteca do Estado.

My work is about the myth. Local, universal, folkloric.

From invented narratives, I create images, paintings, collages, artist’s books and objects that discuss the journey of the hero. From references like Vladimir  Propp, or the babilonian myth of Gilgamesh, I created a protagonist called João Batista that becomes a beast of his own, and meets other creatures during the transformation process.
