This is a painting I did last year and I wanted to show that this symbol of death doesn’t have to be negative, it can be a celebration of a start of a new beginning somewhere else.
This is a series of 4 paintings tittled: “Heart Beats”
Heart Beats 2, 3 and 4 have a glow in the dark effect, which gives a especial touch

Normally, after I do a show, I feel very strange and a bit lost, not knowing what I want to paint after that, because my mind gets too overwhelmed with the preparation and doing all the work for the show, that when it all finishes and I get back to the studio, it’s hard for me to think of what I want to show next. It would be simpler If I only did one thing, because than, you just keep repeating yourself and it’s safe, you know what the painting is going to look like when you finish it and you know you will be happy with it. But I chose a different path, a more complicated one. But for me it’s much more fun, creating different paintings all the time and exploring with different mediums and techniques. But it’s very risky too because it might look amazing but it might look terrible as well . But that is the fun of it!
This painting is tittled : ” Mother Nature ” and is the first canvas I painted after my last show. I wanted to show a mother’s love and how much a mother tries to protect her child.
When I had my son and I had difficulties in getting back to my work, I did a painting of my son and that was the kick for me to get back on track.
So I’ve decided to use the same trick and I think it worked, because it gave me, again, a new direction and after this painting I had a big path ahead of me and a lot of new ideas of what I wanted to show next…
This is the video of a TV program, in Brazil, about graffiti, called : Grampo MTV.
I wanted to cause a positive reaction, by transforming a neutral or negative space into something happy and positive.
