Edition 2017.1 - Selected Artists

Born on March 24, 1956 in the city of Santa Luz (Bahia-Brazil), Dema began his career in 1987. He was graduated in Drawing and Visual Arts at the Federal University of Bahia - UFBA.

His painting is based on the observations of his daily life and on the sleeping memories that populated his childhood. His design, always figurative, is all in geometric format with linear finish or sheaths. The textures are clean and velvety in temperate colors that emerge from the skillful handling of the brushes and the creative sensitivity of fantasizing an unreal world of colors and lines connected by all spaces with a magical force capable of seducing the viewer at first sight.
