The exhibition offers a powerful documentary section on the origins of African “Rustic” Art (Mozambique) and its existential emotions. Nostalgic echoes for the tradition, but leaving space to become infected with elements of the current culture.
In his works (canvas, acrylic) there are natural forms, signs, words, graphic elements, silhouettes … all this variety to give proper and renewed meaning to his work.
