The Artist

Luiz de Souza, plastic artist born in Lauro Müller, Santa Catarina, Brazil, and established in Curitiba, Brazil, since 1995. The inspiration for the name comes from the expression "Light and Shadow" governing various aspects of life and work of this artist.
In the work, the influences of delicate color and Vermeer's light add to Dali's Surrealism and Caravaggio's dramatic chiaroscuro; as well as inspirations from other artists such as Giorgio de Chirico, Magritte and Campanella.
In life, interest in Metaphysics, Psychology and theater were central to their personal growth and for the birth of his work as it is today.
The sum of this world of fantasy and logic or the harsh realities of society and the dream world in which artists live is born "Fantastic Realism" - literary art school which the artist belongs. The Theater's Masks, the characters of Commedia Dell'arte and psychology archetypes added to the social criticism are constant in his work.
Luiz is a self-taught artist. His technique is the result of his own experiments and observations in museums and art galleries; it makes use of more elaborate techniques such as "Flamenco", even the most simple as graphite, chalk pastel and Blood. The sculptures, he makes the characters of his paintings, using recyclable materials in the inner base of the same.
The artist's works are admired by the harmony of colors, the contrast of shadows and composition of the characters, as well as the technical refinement. There are paintings exhibited in several countries, in private collections. In Brazil, they are found in Curitiba - the Art Luiz Barbosa office, and in Florianópolis - the Collector Gallery 669.
