Artist:Kevin Pereira Miranda Lima,Guinea-Bissau
Kevin Pereira Miranda Lima
was born in Bissau on 12/25/1993. He is a Modern Hyper-Realistic Artist Based on his community, the artist portrays the daily lives of the African people, especially
children, going to the market, working on the balls and traces of African women's work. It is a way of honoring the people of Africa, the artist creates pieces that portray the lives of people around him.
His work is “a gradual process”,
taking about three weeks to create individual and unique pieces because of the complexity it can take up to a few months of work. His paintings hit the retina like rays of light in a clear blue sky. It not only documents reality, but intensifies it by exploding
everyday objects in gigantic proportions. This gives you the opportunity to explore each detail closely and dissect it, layer by layer, to get to the heart of the theme. "My paintings," notes Kevin, "aim to enable the viewer to experience reality once more.
The way in which Kevin approaches his work goes directly back to the seventeenth century. He resembles the great masters of realistic paintings, Vermeer in his lucid use of color and eye for detail and refinement, while the lighting in his paintings resembles
the play of light and shadow in Rembrandt's work, but does so in an individual and modern way.
