1. Tell me about something you liked as a child.

lego was my favorite thing as a child, I was able to create whatever I wanted and it was easy to use

1-1. What did you like to make with Lego?

with the lego’s I had, I would usually build cities or some sort of building due to my interest for architecture at the time; but, whenever I had friends join me, it would be something of their taste - normally it would come as a really small city and we play with the characters and build a narrative behind it all


2. Who is your favorite writer? (Art, books, games, etc.)

I dont consume much writing but if I had to say one, it would be whoever made the treyarch COD zombies story, it always fascinated my how deep it goe


3. What was your personal motivation to work on art?

the will to be improve and be good at something. as a kid I always stood out in art class, so I could say I have some advantage on it, and, with having an advantage, I could not throw it away

3-1. In your work, the unique shape created through Photoshop and the unique digital pattern texture are attractive. I think the creation of Lego freely as a child is a clue to explain the personality of the current work. Can you explain it in detail?

 I’ve always wanted to standout when it came to creativity combined with techniques, whether that would be Lego or a simple drawing. Coming to my work now, I feel like that translates to my art because I am very careful with details - there are pieces where I “finish” them in a day but spend the rest of the week looking out for imperfections. but besides that, I also feel like lego translated to me putting in effort on things, maybe it was a warm up to this. 

but about the work itseld, the only connections I could get is something having layers that build up to create something within time, just like in lego. However, Lego has a complete different vibe.


4. What is the important part you would like to talk about through art work?

I want to talk about different view points, lost memories and funny stories that people maybe connect in their day to day lives. For my piece, lost memory, I tried to play with the idea of that one picture “have you seen this man?” for the fact of it having such a mysterious and cool meaning, yet people do not make any changes to it. I felt like the meaning of it could be potentialized to the max by distorting it more, giving reference as to what you really can’t remember in your dreams, mostly when dreams are fragmented, or you have a really bad sleeping schedule, in which most people do (at least myself).

5. Why did you start NFT ART?

a friend of mine, omentejovem, told me it was a good way to keep a healthy relationship with making, and selling art


6. What about the NFT ART you've actually experienced? Tell me about the good and the bad.

The good part is: receiving recognition, being able to sell digital work that is not prints or commissions, building connections with people who you respect, sharing ideas that inspire each other. The bad part is: the community is very niched, and most people have some sort of negative view towards artists there for the fact that it would include NFT in the title (nft should only be a medium!) - NFT would place a view on outsiders that we are only here for the money, sadly.


7. Have you ever been hacked while proceeding with NFT ART? 

yes I have been hacked before! I got a DM from some “old lady” asking for a commission, and she would pay in Ethereum- I said yes and we proceeded to talk more in depth about it. Information comes and goes and we settle on a price we both agreed on… later on she sends me a “picture” I would have to download to see the sketch of what she wants me to make. I download and lost all of my cryptocurrencies.


8. What is the perception of NFT ART in Brazil?

many people have its doubts about what exactly is an NFT here in Brazil, most assume its a virtual picture of a monkey that holds plenty of money for some odd reason, and some think each Nft minted will burn the whole amazon florest; however that is not essentially true, I hope one day people will start to dig in deeper to find what nft and ethereum is truly about, besides some negative sides


9. What is the most memorable moment while doing NFT ART?

selling your first nft! it was something out of this world


10. What do you think is the role of an artist today?

critique the society in some way, or, connect with other
