By carving and building his pieces around the hillside of his property, Nego manages to balance art with nature. Huge in size and with various different themes, it is quite an varied range of work which needs constant maintenance to remain the way it is. Some of the pieces are truly impressive in size and details.

My entire family was mesmerized by the works of Nego. Even my 13 year old son and 15 year old daughter loved seeing these sculptures. I spent over an hour talking one on one with Nego and learned about the spiritual power that inspires his work. Walking through Jardim do Nego is a very personal and life changing experience. In my mind, having the chance to reminisce with Nego was like being able to talk to Picasso or Miro. This is an experience not to be missed!!

The gallery is his gardens, the works of art are carved in the hills, it's incredible! If you're lucky and he's home, he is a very nice and welcoming person.
