Inspiration changes everything. In the case of the artist O.Ribeiro, turned the pain into a new phase of his career: the naive expressionism.

With frequent crises of osteoarthritis and gout on his knees, feet, tendons and wrists O.Ribeiro began to express in his paintings characters with higher volume and painful expression but naive . Thereafter popular figures like St. Francis, guitarists, flutists and fishermen began to populate his canvases with a mission to convey peace and tranquility. With them O.Ribeiro participated in exhibitions in Portugal, held special productions for newspapers The Guardian from UK, El Mercurio from Chile and took his works for private collections in more than 16 countries, from Canada to Martinique.
