DESCRIPTION

I am a Rio de Janeiro artist and architect. Cities are my inspiration. My work process combines media, such as watercolor, acrylic and collage, which I use in layers of digitalized colors and graphics to make virtual constructions of very personal city spaces. The Urban Calligraphy series aims to capture and redraw the urban design of cities, making a digital impression of the most populated cities, territories where the great challenges of the humam associated life and new cultural production will take place. New city prints.
