Journal History



White Man's Foot / Ruderal
stencil / spray on paper

When the Europeans got to America, they inadvertently brought with them seeds of the plant Plantago major, that started to grow wherever they passed. For that reason, the Amerindians named the plant "White Man's Foot". It illustrates the "Ruderal" concept, plants that follow humankind's steps, growing wherever men destabilizes and changes its original environment. Its etymology derives from the latin "rudus", which means "rubble", meaning that those are plants that grow in the debris that we create, in our ruins, claiming the environment for nature once again.
Milarepa - Green hermit
stencil / spray on paper

I used the Buddhist character of Milarepa to reflect upon the uses of unconventional edible plants, as his story is that of a hermit that retreated to a cave and ate only nettles for years, turning green and thin, eventually reaching nirvana, enlightenment.

I just finished making a portfolio about my latest exhibition called "A Serra", which I did together with my wife Juliana about our life outside the big city and closer to nature (although the city is not far away). The exhibition is taking place in the Serra da Cantareira State Park, in a museum which has an incredible view of the city of São Paulo, seen from above.
The exhibit features paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor, drawings, photos, cloths, trees planted by us and land art, compositions with objects we collected from nature.
In the portfolio, besides the pictures of the exhibit and some of the ones we showcased, I also put pictures I took in the park during the period of exhibition.

Here's the address of the portfolio:


Acabei de fazer um portfolio sobre minha última exposição, chamada "A Serra", que fiz junto com minha mulher Juliana, sobre a nossa vida fora da cidade grande e mais próxima da natureza (apesar da cidade não estar longe). A exposição é no Parque Estadual da Cantareira, num museu que tem uma vista incrível da cidade de São Paulo, vista de cima.
Estamos expondo pinturas em óleo, acrílica e aquarela, desenhos, fotos, tecidos, árvores que plantamos e arte da terra, composições com objetos coletados na natureza.
No portfolio, além das fotos da exposição e algumas das que expomos, também coloquei fotos que tirei no parque durante o período de exposição.

Aqui está o endereço do portfolio:
