Patricia Ariel, painter

August 31st, 2012

Artist of surrealist, mystic and visionary themes, Patricia was born in 1970 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she lived and worked until moving to the United States. Since she was a little child, she has been enjoying to give life to her private world through her drawings and writings. She has been drawing since the age of three, never remembering a single time of her life when she was not exploring some type of creative language. She has been also a performing artist, acting, dancing, and singing since her late teens. Although in part self-taught, she has had some formal training in visual arts that included academic drawing classes and a background in Fashion Design. Her love for teaching took her to a bachelors degree in Art Education with a specialization in History of Art from the Rio de Janeiro State University. But it was just after leaving her homeland that she considered the possibility of becoming a fine artist more seriously.

I have always loved old things and animals, strange dolls and item. I started doing collage in my early 20s. Wow thats almost 20 years. I used to use magazines and papers and such but now I use my mac. I find the process to be the same pretty much. The only real difference being that I don’t have to take out the vacuum cleaner every time I work on a piece. Also the computer allows me to paint into the pictures I use much easier than before.

Chico da Silva, Brasil

August 23rd, 2012

FB link to his art work

He was born in Acre in 1923, son of a Brazilian half-Indian-woman from Ceará State and of a Peruvian Amazon Indian. He was raised before a mysterious landscape in the Amazon forest and before a diversity of colors and shapes. The same diversity that probably developed in the boy Francisco Domingos da Silva the geniality of his primitivist paintings which later on would be presented to the world. read more here
