“Spa” by modern contemporary artist, Joaquim Lourenço
Joaquim Lourenço on his artwork “Spa”: “My work usually consists of taking something ordinary and give it a personal look, projecting my experiences, either of life or artwork. Sometimes it may be thru the line, perspective, ambiance, streaks, and blobs of colour, texture, contrasts, negative-positive, a small detail, or an entire body or landscape.”
Joaquim’s inspiration comes from the human body; the curves, shapes, and peculiar details. He likes to use bright and vibrant colours, such as yellows, reds, orange, and greens, combined with deliberate, black lines. They give a certain intensity to the work, so characteristic of his style.
