LACDA is excited to introduce Brazilian artist Lucio Carvalho in his premiere exhibition in the United States. As a child Lucio's father objected to his obsession with art making and consequently he did all of his drawing beneath the dining table. The series is a return to his childhood practice featuring twelve masterfully rendered portraits of the artist's relatives seated at the table surrounded by all of their important objects of life. Each is a wild and sensual world as seen by the imagination of the little artist at work below. The images form a circle around the gallery as a large interconnected table hinting at the look of "The Last Supper."
The pieces are created with a combination of digital imaging, and paint Software seamlessly integrated to create complex works that could be described as hyper-slick or ultra-real. An extraordinary talent and technician, the stylized beauty of his art is nothing short of astonishing.
Los Angeles Center For Digital Art is dedicated to the propagation of all forms of digital art, supporting local, international, emerging and established artists. We have an ongoing schedule of exhibits and competitions, produce editions of wide format archival prints, and provide low cost education for individuals interested in learning software programs utilized for art and design.
