Luiz Zerbini was born in São Paulo in 1959 and lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.Zerbini uses a strong and luminous palette on a range of different subject matter from landscapes, cityscapes, and domestic scenes to those with a more complex or even abstract intention. By juxtaposing styles and techniques, organic and geometric patterns, fields of light and shadow, he creates optical effects that beckon for contemplation. He is an artist that constantly multiplies the formal possibilities related to his painting and rejects any potential stagnation of established formula, making it difficult to define any linearity in his production.
His style creates a new place which looks a mix between tropical paradise and a martian land, I enjoy the style of his landscapes connotate a collage theme. He incorporates the figurative and the abstracted as one, the outcome a new world. Something not seen before, something which tests the boundaries of the real and the obscure.
The shapes which he includes in his artwork are sharp-edged. This makes the overall art piece look almost 3D, it brings out the vibrancy of all the colours he has used. The natural forms dotted all over the board with more structured geometric shapes and forms as well, mixing the structured and the natural. The imaginary and the actual combined to create this lucid fabrication of the environment and its aspects.
