ABOUT THE ART STORE
It has been a long time dream to create an online store with useful products featuring my pictures. It is a way of completing the cycle of creating art with my daily life and bringing it to your day-to-day life beyond the galleries, beyond the virtuality of social media.
I have plans to improve this website, create more products, and release some other projects I have been working on. My goal is to provide always free products and to stimulate you to be creative with me.
I am curious to hear your feedback and your suggestions. Art creates an experience, and I am keen to hear how it resonates with you.
Thank you for your support and for being with me on this journey!
I am a Brazilian Visual Artist based in Austin, Texas. We are never just one thing, so I also work as a Web Manager for a technology company. Just to make it odder, I have a master's degree in Applied Linguistics.
Since I was a kid, I have been an observer and very interested in creative explorations of daily life. I became closer to photography at the age of 21, when I moved to Argentina. I took my parent's camera to share pictures of my experience abroad. I was the first one in my family to be in another country.
However, I ended up registering ordinary details that made part of my life and shaped how I view the world and myself. Since then, I have had the privilege (and the pain) of living in many countries, and I have been using my camera to interpret daily life poetically, as a language.
This multicultural experience combined with a nonlinear career path led me to develop an unusual set of skills of languages, technologies, and world perspective. Weirdly enough, it all comes together to create my projects, pro
ducts, and this website.
Living between new languages and cultures has shown me photography as a powerful way to express and build who I am. I usually seek out ordinary moments or objects, small details, and patterns that compose metaphoric images. I mostly intend to draw attention to underlooked themes and the unexpected beauty of mundane subjects.
I am interested in the relationship between photographic language and poetry, identity, and diversity. I am amazed by the impact art, and creative processes can have on social, racial, and gender equality changes.
My artwork includes mostly still life, abstract, and street photography. But I also enjoy exploring different media (like videography, textile art, painting, collages, etc.). You will see it here! :)
I have had the honor to exhibit my artwork in the US, France, and Brazil. However, now I would like to go beyond galleries and museums, beyond digital, exploring this a new way of communicating and interacting with you.
