the future landscapes of a changing world
"I am absolutely fascinated by cities.
Because of this passion, I graduated in architecture in Rio de Janeiro. While at the university, I started my art studies at the Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro and experienced different kinds of media and techniques, from oil painting to jewelry making, but after being fully introduced to watercolour it soon became another passion.
I started off with small sized watercolours, then I moved on to work with large scale canvas and acrylic colours, trying to achieve the same effects as in watercolour. My works grew stronger, with more intense and explosive colours.
It was while coordinating a group of geographers and urbanists that I developed a growing interest in the connection between maps and art, inspired by the aerial views and sattelite photos of cities which emerged from my computer screen. These beautiful abstract forms influenced me to develop the theme Urban Colours.
I am now developing a new work entittled XXI Century Maps, an evolution of the series of Imaginary Maps. The XXI Century Maps are the future landscapes of a changing world."
