Ongoing personal exploration of shapes, colours and abstraction of realities. Prints on paper and custom commisions are available on request.

Bossa Landscapes
Abstract compositions based on the observation of real things and landscapes, working from the principle that reality adds a layer of meaning and aesthetic beauty I can't find otherwise.

The name of the series is a reference to the musicality and cadence the works impressed upon me, and draws inspiration from my native Brazil's musical genre bossa nova, where the term "bossa" referred to an aesthetic reformulation and a new way of doing things, based on the balance of simplicity and dissonance.
