1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.
I am a visual artist who lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. I was graduated in electrical engineering and worked for 8 years in a large engineering company. In my passage to the universe of art I carried with me the knowledge of putting things in the world.
Then, when I think of a work of art, it appears to me as something that will exist in the real physical space, and establish relationships with the environment in which it will be installed. Hence, my interest in interventions in architecture was an obvious path.
2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?
I don’t have a lot of knowledge about international museums except the more traditional ones that stand out for their extensive art collections. So I don’t think it’s important for me to highlight any especially.
