Biography

I attended the Academy of Visual Arts in Frankfurt, and later, in São Paulo, I majored in design at the School of Fine Arts. After receiving my Bachelor of Arts and gaining experience, I founded my studio, Art Style Communication & Design. Parallel to my studio, I also focused on my career as a lecturer, editor, and researcher.

After earning a Master’s degree in Communication Sciences from the School of Communications and Arts, University São Paulo (the best university in Latin America), with my dissertation titled In Art: Invention and Artifice (published by Blücher 2009), I also concentrated on my Ph.D. and my career as a professor and researcher at School of Communications and Arts, University of São Paulo and School of Fine Arts São Paulo. Then, I got a Ph.D. degree in Design and Architecture from the University of São Paulo (USP) still ranked as the best university in Latin America, and also a Ph.D. in Sciences of Art and Aesthetics (first-class honors thesis / magna cum laude), from the University of Paris 1 (Panthéon-Sorbonne), working on contemporary image analysis of concept innovation: Aesthetics, Contemporary Image. Analysis of the Concept Innovation (published by Paf 2014). Other than that, I have been focusing on images and their socio-political relevance as a postdoctoral researcher and visiting professor of Aesthetics and Sciences of Communication (Postdoc, CAPES Fellowship 2014-2018) at the University of Campinas, São Paulo (UNICAMP), ranked as the second-best university in Latin America. In 2018, after a successful initial selection for the Chair of Philosophy and Aesthetics (with special attention to design), I was invited to a trial lecture (Vorsingen für die Professur) at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart (The Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design). Since 2019, I have been a researcher/co-teacher at School of Communications and Arts, University of São Paulo as well as the editor-in-chief, founder, and head of Art Style | Art & Culture International Magazine and an associate editor of the culture magazine Revista Cultura Extensão of the University of São Paulo. I gave lectures and participated in panel discussions on Aesthetics and Sciences of Communication at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart, Germany; ACTE Institute, Æsthetica – Art et Philosophy, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne; School of Communication and Arts – University of São Paulo (USP) and Institute of Arts – University of Campinas (UNICAMP), and in international conferences. I have also offered courses on aesthetics and communication and published many papers.

For a global survey of academic opinion, I was invited to participate in the annual QS Global Academic Survey 2020, the World University Rankings of Quacquarelli Symonds Intelligence Unit (QSIU).
