Cenas de Lisboa by Maramgoní
Dec 1, 2022 @ 12:00 am - Feb 28, 2023 @ 12:00 am
The plastic artist Maramgoní walks around Lisbon with a keen eye and mastery, in his first solo exhibition in the capital. With more than 30 years of career, this Brazilian artist expresses an urban and at the same time vigorous vision of Lisbon, through 24 works, where he portrays some of the emblematic neighborhoods, such as Alfama or Bairro Alto, Baixa Pombalina, Castelo de São Jorge, the Tagus and some scenes of daily life in Lisbon.
In search of a new artistic reading, based on new aesthetic questions that are reflected in an exquisite drawing, the artist reveals to us a vast pictorial knowledge and procedure based on a philosophical architecture.
artist by nature
Maramgoní was born in São Paulo in 1972, having been interested in drawing since childhood and showing great ability with shapes and proportions. At just 10 years old, he traced the guidelines of his artistic destiny: painting. After a few years of self-taught, in 1987, he opened his own studio, where he also taught.
In 2005, he delved into contemporary art. Indifferent to fads, his work remains authentic and his techniques and colors reveal a genuine gift and love for art. In September 2018, Maramgoní moved to Portugal, settling in the beautiful city of Lagos.
