life has been split between the United States -where he was born in
1975, the Azores -ancestral land, and Lisbon -the city where he
graduated, and has been developing his work.
We are before an artist of the last generation of sculptors, that has
finished his course in the year 2000, at the Lisbonīs Fine Arts
College. He presents us a work that is faithful to his personal
preoccupations and expression, determined by a sober, refined and
rational style. His sculptures refer to scientific areas, such as
physics, or more spiritual ones, such as alchemy. In his most recent
work we are compelled to mention the raw material that is used: wood.
The participation in several collective exhibitions evidences the work
of this artist, that has exhibit regularly since 1993, passing by the
Azores, Lisbon, Sintra and Porto, in Portugal and in Belgrade, Servia.
The quality of his work has been recognized in several juried awards,
and in his many solo shows.
