The artist works can be related to the new primitive movements that appeared in the 80’s, but at the same time seek an original language. There’s a reunion between art, land and life, which appear against the minimalism and globalism. The main material is wood, which the artist sculpts to amazing pieces, full of movement and applies different colors and continuous wave shapes, giving a sense of tribal and pure works of art. The pieces remain raw material (tree), and sculpture, enabling you to behold various perspectives in the same object: the tree; the Paulo Neves’s concept and the extraordinary piece that came out of the conjugation of both.

An extraordinary artist, with about thirty-five years of work and many stories to tell through the “meanderings” of his pieces.
