I am an world-born human who was born sometime, grew up to something, studied somewhere and somehow alive as an artist, as a musician, as a philosopher, as a tattoo artist, as a fool and simulacrum who finds expression through drawings, sounds, silence and thoughts.
My fascination for drawing, aesthetics and music has led me since childhood to spend hours between papers and pens, from line to line, from picture to picture, drawing and writing more and more finely. I’ve also spent most of my time listening to different types of music from different parts of the world.
One day I just stopped drawing and I bought my first guitar and taught myself to play. With my second band, in which I was a singer, we formed a collective with other bands to produce events, our and other bands and their albums.
I studied philosophy in Brazil and Germany.
In Germany I also worked with other bands (metal and rock).
During my studies in Germany I started to draw again and my path turned more and more to art. In this way it became clear to me that I wanted to dedicate myself more to art, my drawings, paintings and music.
In 2012 I started practicing tattooing and taught myself how to tattoo. I’ve worked in some studios and in 2016 I opened my own tattoo studio with the name “Capt. Beasto Tattoo” in Rastede a small town in Northern Germany.
In 2019 I was the first tattoo artist to be recognized as an artist by the BBK (A german association of professional visual artitst). This year I had my first live contact with the handpan when I saw and heard a street musician at a festival. I asked him if I could try and he said “yes”. Since then I have been fascinated, in love and hypnotized by this instrument, and the handpan has become my main instrument.
For 2020 I have prepared my own exhibitions and worked on some art projects with The Hidden Art Project. From the end of 2020 to the beginning of 2021 I worked in a joint exhibition in the Oldenburg City Museum with the art collective The Hidden Art Project.
In February 2021 I released my first composition on Handpan, the first piece of music in a live session that was recorded in November 2020 in an old tower in Oldenburg.
Also in February 2021 I started my art and music project “Music for Plants”, which was published on March 12, and broadcast on several television programs. A television production with a dynamic program of musical and theatrical performances and a different type of audience than the traditional image of a human audience. This has been replaced by something else that reacts to vibrations in the same way as humans do. It is a concert for plants.
