Biography: I've drawn since I can remember myself. I used to draw lots of Snoopys and Mickeys. (,,,) I went to university to study architecture (thinking that it would be the wise thing to do) and I hated it. Thats when I learned that i wasn't very good at drawing cogs and screws, and that I always left smudges on the paper I was drawing on (I still do).I studied graphic design at Ar.Co, in Lisbon, and I liked it. I enjoyed what design brings into your life, I enjoyed (some) teachers, I enjoyed the other students (who were all characters), mostly I enjoyed that the school hours were light and I was able to work on the side. (...) Two or three years ago I decided I was tired of only working on the computer screen, the result was always too clean and straight. So I filled myself with courage and started to (re) learn to draw by hand (and it was much more difficult than I ever imagined). One day I walked by a very large building in Lisbon, painted with a beautiful mural, I stopped and thought "this is what I want to do." Every time I can, I surround myself with spray cans, paint rollers and dirty clothes. I still have to learn lotttttssss of things (making a straight line with a spray can isn't the same thing as drawing a straight line with a pencil). One of these days I'll paint a very large building, you'll see ... I've been learning that my work provokes extreme reactions in people, some like my work, others don't. As long as I'm given a chance to produce colorful stuff I'm happy. Thats it.
