We are pleased to announce an exhibition 沈黙の絵画 Painting is silence. Pintura é silêncio. by Danilo Oliveira on April 22 (Sat) & 23 (Sun), as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura.
Danilo Oliveira had his BA and Master in Visual Arts from UNESP (São Paulo State University) in Brazil. He is researching on painting since the year 2000, always looking for new materialities and ways to explore the bi-dimensional field. It includes mural paintings in several locations around Brazil, where the painting got other relations to the spectators body and daily life, altering the spaces and landscapes around. Last years he’s interested in the theme of the political border or symbolic boundaries that forms our societies. Has made residencies recently in Germany, Uruguay and Barbados. Today he is represented by Virgilio Gallery, in São Paulo, Brazil.
Here are some words from the artist himself.
“the jukebox has to take a leak; and the carpet needs a haircut, and the spotlight looks like a prison break; and the telephone is out of cigarettes, and the balcony is on the make; and the piano has been drinking.” Waits, T.
