Luiz Aquila translates in reds and oranges the warmth of his (and mine) country. At 66 he is more productive than ever and always involved in cultural activities other than his own atelier. Aquila refers to his work as one continuous painting. When seen side by side in a show we can fill in the gaps and get a flow of waves and lines merging together. Always exciting, bold and vibrant his paintings are in some of the main private and corporate collections of Brazil. Valu Oria, in Sao Paulo, will be showing his recent work from tomorrow to November 7th. Full disclosure: Aquila is my cousin, I represented his work for 20 years and he is one of the artists I admire the most.
