Edson Campos, 1955 | Post-Romantic painter

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Edson Campos has enjoyed sketching and painting since childhood. He is a completely self-taught artist.
He moved to the United States in 1978 where he quickly established himself as an artist of the highest caliber.
Campos has exhibited his lifelike, passionate paintings and drawings in major cities throughout the country, winning several awards🎨.

Not surprisingly, Campos' sophisticated artwork also has great popular appeal: it has been commissioned to be exhibited in all 500 rooms of the Queen Mary Hotel in Long Beach, California. Recently, Campos participated in the Art Expo New York, where his work was highly praised by critics. The November 1999 issue of The Artist's Magazine featured his work in a special section on painting techniques.
Edson Campos unites and juxtaposes the most distant traditions in art. He has a gift for painterly allusion, for pastiche.
The contrapposto and beauty of classical sculptures; the sfumato, three-dimensionality and mystery captured by Renaissance artists🎨; the conceptuality of modern art; the playfulness, atemporality, subversion of boundaries and mixture of styles of postmodernism; the timeless appeal of beautiful women; the reverence for feminine sensuality, innocence and grace - all these are respectfully saluted, preserved and transformed for our times by Edson Campos’ postromantic art.

Nato a Rio de Janeiro, in Brasile, Edson Campos si è dedicato con passione a fare schizzi e dipinti fin dall'infanzia.
Campos è un artista completamente autodidatta.
Si trasferisce negli Stati Uniti nel 1978, dove si afferma rapidamente come artista di altissimo livello.
Ha esposto i suoi dipinti e disegni nelle principali città in tutto il paese, vincendo diversi premi🎨.
Non sorprende che le sofisticate opere d'arte di Campos abbiano anche grande appeal popolare: sono state commissionate, per esempio, per essere esposte in tutte le 500 camere del Queen Mary hotel a Long Beach, in California.
Recentemente, Campos ha partecipato alla Art Expo di New York, dove il suo lavoro è stato molto apprezzato dalla critica.
Il numero della rivista "The Artist" del novembre 1999 ha caratterizzato il suo lavoro in una sezione speciale sulle tecniche di pittura.
