I was born in Lobito, Angola, and now living and working in between Lisbon, Portugal and Luanda, Angola. I am a Graphic designer and Painter, with a Master in Graphic Design and Arts at University of Creative Arts, Farnham, U.K..
Been Exhibiting my work in different countries- Angola (Luanda), Norway (Stavanger), China (Shanghai), na Czech Republic (Brno), Germany (Berlin) and Kenya (Nairobi) since 2003.
Throughout my Art Career, have been exploring different materials and techniques, apart of painting also worked with collages, graphic and digital art, video, photography and also embroidery. Besides living as a painter also have worked many years as a Graphic Designer Teacher in Stavanger, Norway, where also worked as a Freelancer Graphic Designer.
“My Painting concepts dance around human interactions and perceptions. About Individual and common essence and how we perceive ourselves and our surroundings, independently of geographical or historical contexts. It’s about egoless states of being, beyond masks and social codification. About common feelings and a celebration of diversity and highlighting – how we are all unique but at the same time, part of one common organism- the earth.
I enjoy painting portraits and human shapes in a graphic way, mixing traditional and modern motifs, geometrical with organic shapes with different patterns all in a sort of clean and meticulous way”.
