I am an artist from Luanda/Angola, living in Lisbon/Portugal at the moment. I have been involved with art since very young, I began writing to the 14 Years old and painting to the 16 (Watercolours and Chinese Ink). In that time, I have published some short stories and poems in several magazines and papers. In the secondary School, I was a Founder and Publisher of the Magazine "The Bantalas" entirely dedicated to the Arts (Art Painting, Photograph, Prose and Poetry) and I have participated in a contest of Art Painting whose objective was the creation of a poster commemorative of the anniversary of the M.P.L.A. obtaining the 1º place.

From 1982 to 1999 I was involved in several musical and theatrical projects as a technician, musician, producer and director, writing several adaptations and two original pieces.

I love experiencing new techniques and ideas, my work is strongly influenced by the African art and by the work of Salvador Dali. I particularly love to work with figurative art.

I'm working exclusively as a professional artist, since the beginning of the new Millennium.

I have an MA in Contemporary Fine Art from the Sheffield Hallam University, United Kingdom.

Does silence help keep you focused when your doing your artwork? Do you get distracted easily with t.v. and other sound when you're working?
