• In this, our digital era of dematerialization of all things, José Ferreira W. maintains that it is essential to a visual artist not to abandon freehand drawing.

• These caricatures were done for fun & relaxation at the artist's initiative or in response to collectors' orders.

• JFW always manages to get the models he can approach to sign the piece along with him, which in a way loops the loop & gives the session an almost therapeutic dimension. Two originals are then done : one for the model/collector and one, double signed, for the artist's personal archive.

• JFW signs his caricatures "josé" or "Joselísimo".
