One thought on “about

  1. Olá Ivan,
    Muito impressionante teu trabalho… Eu queria saber mais sobre Jurema A.P. depois da nossa visita no Verbeke. Agora com o texto em Inglês eu entende um pouco mais. Pronto, já estou a pensar que no futuro os carros e maquinas podem andar quando toca a planta ;-)
    Foi um grande coincidência que o Ronald, Alexandre e Guga encontra um colega assim. Eu queria eles conhecer este local doido. Agora estou a seleccionar as fotos do nosso tempo cá para enviar. Fui também ou site do Verbeke porque tenho de por as legendas nas fotos das obras das artistas. Pena que você não estava na abertura da Europalia no M HKA, foi muito legal.
    Espero que entendes o meu Português, eu escreve muito mal, desculpa.
    Pois, eu sou este Belga, fomos depois jantar na “A Grelha”
    Vamos ver, talvez vamos encontrar de novo…
    Anyway, I wish you good luck in further projects.
    Abraço,
    Philippe Van Os
