ABOUT THE ARTIST
I studied art history and was particularly fascinated by the period between the mid-thirteenth to mid-twentieth centuries. One of my favourite painters is Van Gogh, and I wanted to pay tribute to this incredible artist through my artwork, "Cafe Carioca" (Rio Coffee House), created in the same cafe as Gogh's "Nuit cafe" in Arles. To add complexity to the composition, I included phone booths I had photographed in Rio de Janeiro, where I was born and raised. I can express my views through photography, and I have learned to understand myself better.
