One of his paintings was purchased by Queen of England. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUTLlYQKO70

HEITOR DOS PRAZERES 3/3 – He painted life and culture of Rio favelas, mulatto and samba circles, children playing with kites and life on the streets, the first houses on the hill and street parties.

He attended the Biennial of Saint Paul Of Brazil in 1951. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh9Ez2wGpEQ
