This young creator recreates in his works his own fantastic vision of shamans, sorcerers and mythological stories and in particular the Orishas, through drawings, sculptures and paintings with a children's kaleidoscope overflowing with great color and symbols that shape the vision. This images that he creates far from the academy is a constant search for the primitive forms used by our ancestors, adapting them to his own concept and perception. Fragments upon fragments, colors among colors and countless symbols create magical worlds where Yoruba deities come to life beyond their spiritual existence. It is an infinite journey where each piece is one more step in this adventurous work.
