THE SURGICAL ARTIST

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?

I'd like to say that my work is contemporary and sometimes, intriguing. My creations are involving people in a complex way. I try to make people stop what they are doing and think about what they are seeing in front of them or just feel surprised about something different from what they are used to seeing everyday.

WHAT DOES YOUR ART FOCUS ON?

The focus of my work is totally experimental. I like to try different visual languages, designs and mixtures. I feel inspired by something that really gets my attention. I try new ways to develop my creations until I dominate it in a particular mood introducing my identity and my beliefs.

WHAT TRIGGERS YOUR IMAGINATION?

Usually my imagination is stimulated with some kind of felling, something deep that I feel inside me that I have to explore or show to someone somehow. In the end of a creation, I feel more relieved.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

Santa Catarina , Brazil.

WHEN DID YOU JOIN INSTAGARM?

November 2013.

HOW DID IT MAKE YOUR WORK EVOLVE?

In the beginning I just started to create when someone asked me and I always felt worried about what people were going to say - It was absurd, isn't it? After that, I understood that I was free to do anything that I want to do and I began to make things that I truly enjoy. I understood that I was in love for that and the moment of creation was

mine, just mine. Until now, when I was creating something for me or for others, I see myself alone in a million of crazy emotions and try to organize them in better way. To worry about what people are going to say is a waste of time. I just take a deep breath and relax to create... trying to show my own chaotic world to others.

WHO ARE THE PEOPLE YOU WORKED WITH?

Here in Brazil, I had the opportunity to work with some famous night clubs in São Paulo developing graphic designs for parties. I worked with some fashion brands developing surface designs and graphic designs as well.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU POST?

Usually once a week.

WHAT ACCOUNT DO YOU FOLLOW RELIGIOUSLY?
I like to see different things. Fashion, design, architecture, music. Everything can bring me an unexpected inspiration.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST LIKED ARTWORK/ PHOTO?
In general, all of my project Faces [UN] Bonded.

WHAT ARE YOUR LATEST OR FUTURE PROJECTS/

COLLABORATIONS?

Nowadays, I'm developing a project called Faces [UN]Bonded, where I take pieces of the people's head off and create a new universe inside. For the future, I'm planning to focus on surfaces at a design studio, that is my second passion in life.
