Brasil Goulart (Atelier)"I am an art workman, I put all my energy into the job in my studio, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, every single day!"
This is how the artist Brasil Goulart defines himself, with a big smile on his face. His modest words and his sympathetic way contrasts with the impact of his artworks.
His career as an artist, however, looks like it was drawn at birth. Brasil Goulart, a truly artistic name, is the real name of the artist, inherited from his father, his major encouraging. As early as the age of two he rehearsed his first drawing, which was carefully kept by his father and presented to him only when he was 19.
In youth, actually, starts his professional contact with the world of design, as a publicity designer for big stores. Around this time, that through contact with great professionals, he could improve his technique, tame the brushes and mature the dash.
A few years later he embarked upon the mystical world of oriental art and began his apprenticeship in the Sumie technique, that became his great passion. Those strong, quick and, sometimes, an incisive dash can be seen in his works until the present day. Today, as a mature artist, he believes that his studio is a great alchemical laboratory, where there is no limit to the experimentation.
Literature, cinema, collage, ink, charcoal, wine, and perspiration compose his Pictorial Eclecticism, in which he feel free to mix the colors and the speed of advertising, with black and white from the millenary oriental art.
The daily dedication to work and a whole life learning and developing techniques, allowed Brasil Goulart to reach the present day with a large number of individual and collective exhibitions, in Brazil and many places around the word.
And, paraphrasing the master Pablo Picasso, he used to say: "It is not up to me determinate that inspiration comes. The only thing I can do is make sure it finds me working."
