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!

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.
