Sao Paulo, Brazil artist Dante Horoiwa recently finished up his first U.S. solo exhibition at Anno Domini Gallery in San Jose, California.
Horoiwa’s paintings depict “the spiritually lost and lonely. Through his work, he is able to cope with his want to hide from the world and his need to be a part of it.”
“What I´m trying to express is some kind of ‘invisible insistence,’ invisible forces that are around us, things that lead us to a blindness and a lack of comprehension. It makes us drown all of our intuition and instinct into the things that makes us feel comfortable enough to forget our own imperfections, anesthetizing our existence, our individuality as a being…the invisible insistence that devours our means to grow.”
The 21 year old artist has quickly gained recognition for his work around the world including Brazil, Australia, the Netherlands and California. In 2009, Horoiwa took part in R.U.A - Reflexo on Urban Art – Lines, Colours and Forms of Brazilian Urban Art – a street art exhibition in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
