“Gods” is the name I give to this series of paintings of animals from an archaic world. These creatures have always been with me in my drawings and paintings as supporting actors, from the very beginning.

In 2003, I came to live in São Paulo and these animals stood up as protagonists. As if it were a pact, I started living for them and they for me. I gave them everything they expected from me, covering them with the most precious and dignified skin that only a God could have. In exchange, they told the city who I was and what I was here for.
