About Filipe 

Statement

What I love about being an artist is the possibility to create and open windows over new worlds and to leave a legacy that may last for very long.

I feel that to be an artist is both a privilege and a huge responsibility. I aim to keep a very high standard and produce a consistent work.

It is very rewarding to see others enjoying and buying my work. I am surprised because my paintings are loved by all kind of people.

I enjoy the emotions that people experience when seeing my work and the communication that is established.

That gives me the motivation and excitement to continue creating and continuously improve.
