My name is Dionisio Jacob and I’m a writer and visual artist living in the Brazilian city of São Paulo. For many years I taught art class for kids, and I’ve always been influenced by the type of direct expression that children have in their work. Maybe that’s why I like to use strong and defined colors in my acrylic paintings. I also seek to construct complex compositions from basic shapes. I believe strongly that art can have a important and universal message to our time.
