The human figure and the language of its body movements as well as its facial expressions have always inspired me. They convey emotions and suggest narratives.
As an intense observer of the world that surrounds me, I am always attentive to visually spot motives that may stimulate me to draw. This is my life, a natural flow between observation and reflection.
I extract the essence of the image and interpret it in a personal way. By adopting a certain level of abstraction, I can synthesize form, emphasize composition and movement originally using rectilinear and geometric shapes.
As a graduated architect, I discuss the relation between the human figure and space. I create tensions between the human existence and the description of the environment where they are.
From my own experience, I seek for the visual force of painting to involve the spectator’s eyes and offer them the opportunity to project their own interpretation.
Eduardo Sampaio searches the human image and its relation within the space. His arts reveals the body expression persuaded by the enviroment where it is inserted. In this way, he creates tales that inquire his lifestyle in the space invented by him. He adopts a level of abstraction that allows it to simplify the form, emphasizing movement and composition.
He extracts the soul of his experiences, and share it as an opportunity for the other to make their own interpretation.
He was born in 1982 in São Paulo and since his childhood he has had a deep relationship with drawing. In 2007 he graduated as an architect at Faculdade Presbiteriana Mackenzie. He has attended many drawing lessons including the studio of José Paulo Latorre who is a teahcer of the university Centre of the Fine Art of São Paulo.
In 2015 he moved to Paris to study painting and to expand his artistitc carrer abroad. There, he has joined many collective expositions. In 2022, he had his first individual exposition at Le Pavé d’Orsay, in honor of Modern Art Week Centenary.
Nowadays he lives and work in Montreuil, França.
