Jose Roosevelt | Rio de Janeiro | Surrealist



"I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1958. An autodidact, I held my first exhibition at the age of twenty, in Brasilia. Already, my compositions were full of dream-like and symbolic images. In 1988, I had the opportunity to show my paintings and drawings in Europe. Two years later, I set up my atelier in Lausanne, Switzerland. Since then, I have shown my art in several countries: Switzerland, France, Italy, Belgium, Denmark and the United States. But painting is not my only activity: I have illustrated many books notably Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll written and drawn some graphic novels, drawn a Tarot card deck, and published two catalogues of drawings and one of paintings".
