Amauri Torezan’s Paintings are Featured at Arthouse 429

Amauri Torezan had been hiding his artwork in plain sight…until now!  When The Rickie Report shares opportunities for artists and crafters to network, we honestly hope you will take advantage of them.  Amauri is a perfect example, as he attended one of Arthouse 429’s Marketing Seminars with Raquel Williams, Ilene Adams and Rickie Leiter.  While Amauri had been selling artwork on his own previously, he did not have gallery representation.  This interview with Amauri explores the process he went through and shares some of his colorful artistry that is now being shown at Arthouse 429. His colorful acrylic abstracts will make you happy!

TRR:  What specific types of art experiences influenced you while growing up?

AT:

I grew up in the big city of São Paulo,Brazil.  I always had access to many sources of art such as public art workshops, museums, street art and so on. Cartoons also played important role in my artistic formation.

 

 

TRR:  Why did you keep your abstract art at a personal level when you moved to the US. ?

AT:

I was just making art to please myself, without any intentions to show it to anybody.  I have been creating art since was born, I guess. It got more intense as a teenager, but I began painting bigger pieces in 2011.

TRR:  What are your favorite mediums? (Are there mediums you tried but prefer others?)

AT:

 My main medium is Acrylic paint. I also like to work with collage, which I haven’t done much of lately. Photo collage is something that pleases me a lot.

TRR: What helps keep you inspired to create?

AT:

What helps me to keep inspired is the audience feedback, which is always related with the happiness that the colors of my work transmit to them. It’s always a great feeling to know that my artwork is bringing moments of happiness to people . It feels like my contribution to a happier world.

TRR: Please tell us about your experience at the Marketing Seminars at Arthouse 429.

AT:

It was great. I am always trying to educate myself.  It’s great when you find a source of information like these seminars, with experienced people with a lot of knowledge to share.

 

TRR:  How did you join the Arthouse 429 team?

AT:

When I attended the Marketing Seminars and visited the gallery, I felt that my work could fit there.  I had to apply for it and then I was invited to bring some pieces to the gallery for analysis.  Arthouse 429 Manager, Mary Coyle, later came to visit my studio. Then my work went to the gallery to be shown!

 

 

 

"Gratitude" by Amauri Torezan

“Gratitude” by Amauri Torezan

TRR:  You have had many exhibitions, especially in Miami. Do you paint full time?

AT:

My artistry is my full time devotion.  I recently had an exhibit at Conception Art Fair during the Art Basel 2014.  My collaborative work with the renowned sculptor, Gino Miles, was recently shown in Los Angeles (January 15-18,2015) at the LA Convention Center for the LA Art Show.

TRR: Any advice for emerging artists?

AT:  

The work of an artist goes way beyond just creating art.  Learn as much as possible about the art business.  Educate yourself, then apply what you have learned into hard work until you see that EVERYTHING that you could have done is done.

Erik Kučera is an award winning artist from Slovakia. He is the creator of the world renowned technique, “Surreallations”, which creates the illusion of depth and movement in each piece. His work is unique and readily recognizable as a “Kučera”. Erik has participated in over 200 exhibitions worldwide and his art can now be found in more than 16 different countries.

 

 

 

"Strength" by Erik

“Strength” by Erik Kučera

 

Modernity Art is the main gallery for the art works of Erik Kučera. An award winning artist from Slovakia, he is the creator of the world renowned technique, “Surreallations”. The Surreallations technique, which creates the illusion of depth and movement to each piece, is what makes each work so unique and readily recognizable as a “Kučera”. Erik has participated in over 200 exhibitions worldwide and his art can now be found in more than 16 different countries.

 

Erik Kučera’s artistry has been seen in Art in Public Places at the Palm Beach International Airport Juried Exhibition.  Erik tells The Rickie Report, “I am an artist because to be anything else would be untrue. Through my art I hope to bring awareness to situations in the world which are not always so easy to talk about or even read about. I enjoy also taking themes from the past and working them in a new and exciting way, a way in which people have never seen before.”

“Kaleidokrank” by Erik Kučera

 

Erik goes on to explain, “When I create my art, I always see the images in all dimensions in my mind. Every piece takes hours of thoughtfulness and consideration so that the art can tell a story and give the viewer a journey through a world created in a single piece. Some concepts for work can be inspired from the weather or song, and then the ideas flow easily. Other works are themes which can require days of research, and investigation of symbols, history and literature.”

Black and White Artistry by Erik Kučera

 

 

 

“When I first started seriously as an artist, I didn’t trust myself beyond a white sheet of paper and a black marker. I created my first works on the basis of my black and white checkered pattern. Over the years I discovered my love of colors and through much trial and error eventually developed the technique of “surreallations”. It is my own way of creating the illusion of depth and movement in a piece. All my works today are carefully developed using a variety of tools and different mediums in order to perfect this technique. However, in nearly every work I create you can still find the original black and white checkered pattern which was the seed from which my art has grown,” he shares with our readers.

Ray Gross’ Newest Art Sculptures Premiere At Art Palm Beach

Ray Gross’ ceramic pieces are well-known in Palm Beach County galleries and exhibit venues. At the Palm Beach County Convention Center during Art Palm Beach 2015, Ray’s work will be seen in three spaces!  His newest up-scaled, giant sized porcelain “tubes” will be featured at Booth #602 and at Whitespace Collection’s Booth.  (During SCOPE, Miami, the Brunelli Gallery sold out!)  Ray’s “Louie, Louie” porcelain handbag sculpture is part of  the juried show of Art Synergy in Booth # 718.  Hyper-realistic, his porcelain sculptures are often mistaken for the “real thing”.  The Rickie Report urges you to visit Ray during Art Palm Beach January, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 and grab one for yourself!
