Filipe De Merisi
Filipe De Merisi is a seeker to endure in the Arts. His aim is to give color to this shaken, twisted world. He is inspired by immediate surroundings, curiosity, and daily artistic wanderings. As a result, he intend to bring to life bright & colorful paintings full of delicious ambiguity and vibrant energy. Compositions filled with personal and artistic flare, embellished by the spirit and soul, infused by the artist within.
He loves Art and the process of creating because not only fuels my boldness, but it morphs him to touch people, to evoke in them wondering and dreamlike transformation.
He recently participated in the «Realism» Exhibition at The Holy Art Gallery in London, in a collective display of emerging artists.
Also, he has been selected to be featured in the upcoming Bruxelles Art Vue Power Of Color 2021 book.
He creates narrative, unconventional silhouettes, figure paintings, experimental landscapes, and backdrops that reflect his experience of the world. He ́s an old-fashioned advocate using primarily graphite pencils, charcoal, India inks as well as oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, and coloured pencils to explore deeply themes of nostalgia, loneliness, perseverance, liberalism, and the golden bridge between the realm of dreams and reality. His paintings are inspired by immediate surroundings, curiosity, and daily artistic wanderings. His compositions are filled with both personal and artistic flare, embellished by his spirit and soul, infused by the artist within. They aim to touch people, to evoke in them a sense of wondering, dream-like transformation.
