The Casino Estoril Art Gallery opens, on the 27th of November, at 5 pm, the exhibition “Cenas de Lisboa”, by the Brazilian artist Maramgoní. Admission is free.
The artist Maramgoní, walks around Lisbon with a keen eye and expertise, in his first solo exhibition in the capital. With over 30 years of career, the artist expresses an urban and at the same time vigorous vision of Lisbon, through 24 works, in which he portrays some of the most emblematic neighbourhoods, such as Alfama or Bairro Alto, Baixa Pombalina, Castelo de São Jorge, the Tagus and some scenes from the daily life of Lisbon. In search of a new artistic reading, based on new aesthetic questions that are reflected in an exquisite drawing, the artist reveals a vast pictorial knowledge and procedure based on philosophical architecture.
Artist by nature
Maramgoní was born in São Paulo, in 1972, having been interested in drawing since childhood and showing great skill with shapes and proportions. At just 10 years of age, he sets the guidelines for his artistic destiny: painting. After a few years as a self-taught person, in 1987, he opened his own atelier, where he also taught. In 2005, he delves into contemporary art. Indifferent to fads, his work remains authentic and his techniques and colours reveal his genuine gift and love for art. In September 2018, Maramgoní moved to Lagos, Portugal.
