Tiago Carneiro Da Cunha Biography

Tiago Carneiro da Cunha seeks to replicate the gradient effect of twilight by manipulating the paint in round brush strokes across the canvas. Such manipulation allows him to balance the various levels of saturation and contrast within the compositions, lending apocalyptical nuances to the scenes. Employing dry humor —a trademark of his work— the artist creates hybrid figures that seem to suffer or collapse according to a sort of final judgment carried out by the stars, moral actors in this eloquent narrative.
