Juan Mércio Silva dos Santos began his career making poetry on the bus out of financial necessity, but after taking a liking to the profession-poet, he exercises it and expresses it out of soul need. Sunny or rain, he is on the street every day, carrying his message wherever he goes. He performs on the streets, public transport and educational institutions, presenting poetry, theatre, capoeira and storytelling. It is also the organizer of cultural events, such as poetry soirees, mc's battles and cultural circles, which cover various aspects of Art and Culture.

He makes several sacrifices for his art, having already walked 5 hours, at dawn, to return from a Poetry Soiree. He is also self-taught, much of what he learned was based on empirical knowledge, without fear of making mistakes and being happy. You have been slighted for being who you are, but you have also received tears and smiles of admiration, and that is what keeps your strength going.

His Brazilian musicality and bold interpretations won, in addition to a loyal audience, the praise of critics. As an interpreter, Erick worked with the groups Cesta Básica (PB), Mercedes Band (CE) and Grupo Etc and Tal (AL), already with the groups Sine Qua Non (PB) and Zaraquê Trio (RN) recorded albums where he also acted as composer.
