Lives and works in São Paulo


David Almeida experiments with different traditional media in his work and is captivated by his immediate surroundings – the city, the Brazilian countryside and nature. In the paintings, the boundaries between the figurative and the imaginary are examined. Occasionally the materiality and the act of painting is allowed to take control and the images approach the metaphysical and spiritual. Almeida approaches concepts such as memory, body and perception in landscape painting that subtly manifest culture and nationality. In the paintings, there is an open dialogue between the motif and the craft.
