Description

The connection between nails and cutlery can also be symbolic, alluding to the concept of transformation. While nails are used to join and build, cutlery serves as tools for the deconstruction of food, preparing it to be absorbed and transformed into energy by our bodies. This duality prompts us to reflect on human nature: we are beings capable of constructing and transforming the world around us, but we also depend on processes of deconstruction, such as eating, to survive and thrive. Ultimately, the relationship between nails and cutlery can be surprising and profound, highlighting the interconnection that exists in many aspects of life. Through seemingly simple objects, we can find meaning, history, technique, and, above all, the expression of human essence in all its creative and functional facets.

A graduate of the António Arroio art school, he swiftly established his own jewelry studio, setting out on a creative odyssey that encompasses sculpture, plastic arts, and scenography.

His journey in the arts has been highlighted by numerous achievements, including accolades at jewelry exhibitions, solo shows in avant-garde galleries, and partnerships with esteemed entities. His diverse portfolio features sculpting trophies for the Deloitte award ceremony, orchestrating the annual show for Ginásio Clube Português, and creating both functional and ornamental items for Plano restaurant and the IVENS Hotel in Lisbon.
