  • I was born in Portugal and with 4 years old I went to Africa with my family. I grew up in Mozambique and I build myself as an artist and person, in a world where suffering was and is present but it is full of color, shapes, textures and lights fantastic. I fell progressively in love from these shapes, colors and lights that lay before me in all its fullness and strength. Now, far from Africa is hard to end my lifelong yearning for Africa.
