Art Statement:

 I use different media in my artistic work as painting, graffiti, collage and 3d, with the objective of passing a positive message about life and questioning contemporary social and cultural moments. Born in São Paulo, I learned to see the beautiful in the midst of chaos, making street art and underground culture ever present.
