About Tavares

Tavares was born under the tropical sun of the city of Salvador, Bahia, and his painting is the translation of the Brazilian heat boiling inside the four lines of the white screen.

Inspired since infancy by the kindness of the familiar bows shown in the sensible drawing of his mother, discovers in the adolescence the possibility  to juxtapose colours on white spaces and thus to produce a new element,pictorial, flying from his fingers to the represented imaginary.

It is then that his innocent curiosity recognizes in this adventure its destination, and his goal will  be , from  then on, the plastic arts.
A young, however determined Tavares, goes to meet the knowledge adjusted to base his art: at the age of 19, he registers himself in the School of Communications and Arts of the University of São Paulo, academic Brazilian Meca of his chosen craft.
It is there that he learns that the same technique that oppresses him when limiting his dreams into blank screens, also enables him to explore infinitely its possibility to create.

In this conjunction, in singular combination of techniques and consecrated traces, Tavares constructs its workmanship, in an explosion of landscapes, figuratives and abstracts of innovative style.



Tavares works with vibrant colours, contrasts inpermanent symbiotic effort. Broken up and irregular, his straight lines and curves delimit the spaces filled for tones that stir up the observer to look for symmetry, which are present only in discrete appearances of geometric standard forms, surprising the set of lines that exhibit its rebellious proper life, trajectory freedom, but loads in itself the embryo of the imminent reorganization.

The use of the relief in his pictures in such a way sends us to the inspired vibrant movement of youth, like running lights, but can also lead to the decrepitude of the old one in disfiguring wrinkling.

Its abstracts are an invitation to the permanent inquiry of the vibratory energy of the colours.


Like almost an impressionist, his trace describes the atmosphere in peace with its shades, docile when displaying its natural composition of microscopic forms at moments sometimes perceivable only to the artist himself, who shares with the observer the harmony captured at this moment.


A magic aura involves the personages-subject of this style in the workmanship of Tavares. The expression of the simplicity of the human being figure alludes to those more authentic manifestations of its nature, revealing its sex, its sleep, and its form. But it has its representatives identities preserved by strategic clouds of anonymity. This way, Tavares turns universal the unique manifestations of the human beings.

Facing the paintings of Tavares, the infinitude of the colour induces us to eternity.
