André Netto

The rich and intriguing oil paintings of Andre Netto offer a world distorted by the strange and unexpected. Influenced by Dutch and German artists of the 15th and 16th centuries as well as 20th century Magic Realism, Netto’s works rely on depth, shadow, exaggerated perspectives, and anachronistic juxtapositions to depict his subjects in novel, playful, and thought-provoking situations. The conflation of actions and facial expressions transcend the present, engaging the viewer in a unique and timeless exchange with reality. Netto, an award-winning painter and sculptor, lives and works in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
