PIPA Prize 2023 nominee

Self-taught, the artist has been developing pictorial and imagery research that covers African ancestral rites and the mythology of the orixás. In his production, full of nuances that extrapolate the themes beyond the religious question, the Yoruba pantheon is revered as an epistemological force, of ancestral knowledge and mysteries. The figures, or landscapes, as he has been exploring in his recent production, are contemplative and full of personal stories, through fables he creates to guide the features seen in the works.
