Paulo Duarte Filipe
Faro, Portugal
"For Paulo Duarte Filipe, painting never is nor has been an amorphous or even ambiguous act. His painting does not allow any distraction nor even the slightest hint of indifference. As if we were induced, for a undefined time, into a curious and bizarre hypnotic state. Endowed with an imagination both unusual and baffling, the artist has, however, kept a remarkable pictorial coherence deeply founded in his own unique technique, permanently evolving and refining with time. In this set of works, Paulo D. Filipe defies us to follow him through enigmatic displays of superiorly colored and magical storytelling, perversely occult, taking place in another universe, apparently distant, amazingly close... We must then allow ourselves to discover his new colorful world and deny all stereotypes and refute useless concepts."
