I'm a printmaker, draftsman and illustrator. Croatian-brazilian, I was born in 1981 in São Paulo, Brazil, where I currently live with my wife and a dog. I work at the print studio that I have at home since late 2015. Before I established this workspace of mine, I practiced intaglio and print techniques at the Marta Traba Gallery's Print Atelier, at the Memorial da América Latina.
I draw or engrave "alla prima", without rough drafts or photographic references. I draw from my memory, which is really not accurate. This confused and tortuous way in which things stay in my memory can become a good print. It doesn't always happen. I engrave directly on the copper plate, without transferring preparatory drawings, employing direct techniques: dry point and mezzotint.
