Story Behind the Art:-
Ivan Borges was born and grew up among prints, he is the son of J. Borges, renowned woodcut artist. His works are widely recognized and, with his father, has traveled to exhibit and teach his art in workshops in Europe and in the United States. He keeps traveling on his  own to exhibit his works abroad  and to sell them allover Brazil.  I was born in 1978 in Bezerros, a small city of the State of Pernambuco. Since the age of 10, I have been helping my father in his atelier, but at the age of 15, my life turned upside down. My  girlfriend got pregnant. We were too young and, for a year, each of us stayed in our parents' homes. At 17 we decided to go to São Paulo with our baby boy and have our own home. We lived there for two years. I have worked as a gardener, wall painter and bricklayer assistant. Upon coming back to my  small hometown, I went again to work with my father.I was creating my woodcuts and when I was 20, I decided to have my own workshop. I was father and grandfather very early. I have two sons and a daughter who gave me a grandchild.   I have funny memories of my travels with my father. In 2005, we both were invited to teach our art in a workshop in Marseille, France. During the day we had an interpreter, but the problem was the night when we went to dinner. As we spoke only Portuguese, we started to choose the dishes from the first in the menu and so on. On the third day, we tried a dish called entrecôte , we liked it. Fearing to find something strange to our taste, we spent 22 days eating the same dish: entrecôte. On the day of our departure, I decided to try another food and asked it based on the price, the most expensive. It took a long time to be served and I told my father next to me that I didn't like it. At that moment, the waiter turned to me speaking in Portuguese, he was Brazilian ... we laughed a lot and the Manager told us to choose whatever we wanted for free. We were so happy and noisy that the other clients were looking at us.. Then the manager explained the situation and everybody was laughing.. but the adventure didn't stoped there, on our flight back to Brazil, my father had a breathing problem when the airplane was about to taking off and had to returned and a doctor came to see him. Since then, he is avoiding to take long flights. I have also traveled a lot on my own, abroad and within Brasil to exhibit and sell my woodcuts. Despite the recognition of my works, it has not been easy to live and raise my family only from my art, but it is what I like to do and feel fully realized.
