Hamilton Aguiar

Hamilton Aguiar (1965) was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. In 1987 he moved to the United States to pursue his passion of art. During his many years of studying art and working in art restoration, Aguiar began to explore various painting techniques.
. Aguiar applies silver leaf over the entire background of his linen canvases and then creates washes and shadows with oil paint. The images radiate a dramatic light due to the interaction between the richness of the oils and the mercurial nature of the silver.
The composition of his paintings is inspired by the changing seasons of natural landscapes, which are interpreted in a powerfully monochromatic content.
