After his first work, “Caca’s Place”, launched in 2014, the Brazilian who for years lived in Rome and now resides in Paris, has returned to the pages of artistic literature with his ex-wife, Charlene Shorto. Together, they explored the little Portuguese paradise of Comporta, an idyllic destination that they have visited for 35 years, as an invitation from Pedro Espírito Santo.
