When the colorurs begins to run out

Dark Brazil

Brazil at night

Dark Brazil is a set of paintings that were part of the Brazilian Biennial of Art SESC 2018 and the Biennial Diversa in 2019 and were created during 2015 and 16, in the unstable political scenario that would later give way to a coup d'état and the first right-wing government since the dictatorship in Brazil and tried to show the contrast between the happy and positive face of the publicity that the artist did during the day and the people who were on the street at night, looking for sustenance. From these contacts are born the paintings with blurred and monochrome characters that try to counterbalance that colorful fantasy that no longer exists except in the advertising imagination.
