[Brasil] Artist Profile : Wilson Neto

December 15, 2010

Fortaleza, Brasil — Sitka Creations is happy to have been found by Brasilian artist Wilson Neto (and friends)

By Michala Smith

Mr. Neto is another export from Brasil that we Americans can be envious of. Wilson is a self-taught artist who has been hitting the art scene at full speed since 1996. With more than 20 exhibitions in both the United States and Brasil under his belt, he continues to take the art world by storm, using his own unique sense of style and his zest for the peculiar. He loves to twist popular works of art with his contemporary vision, spinning them right onto book covers, oil barrels, telephones, and postcards. Currently, he is continuing his study of the fusion of “high” art—work you’d see at galleries and museums—with “popular” art—familiar images from animated movies, advertising, comic books, and graphic novels. He is also making headway on how to use his craft on unique canvases. He works as an illustrator for several publications, including Cru-a magazine (an art journal from Portugal), Aldeota (a Brasilian magazine), and several Brasilian government publications and book covers. His colorful perception of art is proof that Wilson Neto is indeed in a league of his own.
