Portuguese Visionary Exhibits Paintings of Paradise

Capitola, California

4/24/2003 - Joao de Brito will display his art at the Many Hands Gallery located at 510 Bay Avenue in Capitola.

With successful shows in the Bay Area, Washington D.C., New England and the Azores during 2002, de Brito resolved to share his visual perceptions at home and to personalize his paintings with Northern California landscapes and seascapes.

"For several years I celebrated the heart of my homeland," de Brito said, referring to the Island of St. Michael in the Azores. "I painted from the eyes of a young boy – from my memories as a child, along with things I observed on my many return visits. For this show, I painted from the eyes of a man who is fortunate enough to live amid such beauty. I often refer certain places along the California Coast as paradise."

De Brito not only draws from his Portuguese roots, he is influenced by great French fauvists, and ironically, by many early California impressionists such as August Gay, Seldon Gile, Armin Hansen, Franz Bischoff and the "great" female artist E. Charlton Fortune. .

As the featured artist at Many Hands Gallery, 11 of de Brito’s works will hang along one wall for viewing and will be available for sale.

While painting has always been De Brito’s main passion, he spent many years as an art director and marketing consultant. Today, his energies are focused on creating art that produces both emotion and thought. "My paintings must say something; they must live on in the mind’s eye."

To view and/or purchase João de Brito’s paintings, visit the Many Hands Gallery at
511 Bay Avenue in Capitola California.
