In 2017 I moved to Porto and let my artwork to be the result of this displacement. ‘When we made the ocean river’ is a serie of works that reflect of an introspective state and the effort to keep close the people and feelings from the sea beyond.

During the project I started drawing migrant animals, as a way of remember that borders are an abstraction created by humans, and mentioning the utopia of living without them.

It also led me to the No Borders serie.
