New Work - Painting
"Paulo Pasta is widely regarded as one of Brazil’s most prolific and accomplished contemporary painters. Over a nearly four-decade-long career, he has committed himself wholeheartedly to the medium of painting. Traversing landscape and abstraction, Pasta has consistently demonstrated his mastery of colour and form on the two-dimensional plane.
He is spoken of in Brazil as an artist’s artist. His name will often surface in conversation when speaking to a wide range of current Brazilian painters. They will typically reference him as a mentor, a teacher, or a foundational influence on their generation. Many speak of him as the torchbearer of the country’s strong tradition of artistic pedagogy - a particularly Brazilian expectation that knowledge, technique, and thinking should be passed from one artist to another."
Cecilia Brunson Projects and Galeria Millan are delighted to be bringing Paulo Pasta’s work to London and the UK for the first time for an extensive exhibition of his paintings, curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro - curator of the 33rd São Paulo Bienal.
