This work made me grow a lot as an artist. In it I reflected a lot on the passage of Jesus in the desert and on all the meanings of temptations. Illuminating the Paths was commissioned by my brother Paulinho, and it represents the moment when Jesus was strengthening his spirit to fulfill the mission entrusted to him. And, he found in the wilderness the three snares, or temptations, of being, power, and knowing. And in the work I try to elucidate the dilemmas of the three temptations.
