In Uruguay from 1970 to 74, he studied with Alceu Ribeiro and then between 1976 and 79 with Guilherme Fernandes, who was part of the Torres Garcia Workshop. After that, he decided to live in Spain where he also exhibited in Portugal and Switzerland. He returned to Brazil in 1993 and began exhibiting in national galleries, with Galeria Tina Zappoli being the first to receive his work in the country.
