The Nada - Solo Exhibition - London - U.K
"The Nada" is a phonetic play on Portuguese expression for "you're welcome" (de nada), with "nada" meaning "nothing". In that sense, the title of the show is also "The Nothing", as a reference to his subjects that are often invisible in the eyes of society. Meaningful to the artist, the themes covered with this body of work are the simplest, yet most important things in life - family, solitude and love. These motifs are presented through three different forms of nothing - the vacuum, the void, and the nothingness. The vacuum being a space not filled by any matter, but can contain light (family), the void being a space with no matter, but having the capacity to fit something (solitude), and nothingness being a concept to which no physical laws can apply (love). For his London debut São Paulo-based artist created 18 canvases that are showing that nothing does exists and is part of our lives."
