Painter, draftsman and engraver. He began his painting studies with Yoshiya Takaoka, in 1944. His first solo exhibition takes place in 1947, at the age of 14, at the Ita gallery in São Paulo. He participated in the Guanabara Group between 1950 and 1952. He is the youngest artist to participate in the São Paulo Biennial in 1951. In 1952, he traveled to Paris to study painting, mosaic and fresco techniques and, although he initially attended French academies, ends up dedicating himself self-taught to studies copying classic works at the Musée du Louvre [Musée du Louvre] in order to learn the techniques of great masters such as Botticelli (1445-1510), Fra Angelico (1395-1455) and Paolo Uccello (1397- 1475), among others. In 1960, he returned to France to research the use of the classic Glacis technique, where he remained for 19 years, when he returned to live in Brazil.
