Manoel Veiga | Sao Paulo, Brazil
An expedition for creative enlightenment, from engineering brilliance to rediscovering his artistic flare in Paris. Science and physics led to the unforeseen creations of his technique and mission for mastery in the depths of creative realms. His paintings reveal the development of a process in which natural phenomena (diffusion, gravity, and capillarity) used as tools that will construct the artwork, following a well-structured technical procedure that nonetheless accommodates in its core a certain measure of randomness. He seldom uses brushes, and it is in an indirect manner that the author guides the flowing of the paint. When these movements are eventually fixated on canvas, the image of new space is generated. This image is immediately associated with everything that is natural, for the procedures created by the artist include the very same phenomena employed in Nature. Veiga’s art first impacts you with a strong achromatic range that grazes a wave of subtle warm colors with forceful taints of fresh colors. As the equation of a chemical reaction, the hues collide gracefully creating the perfect solution for an effortless visual shock.
