Dina Garcia – “The Colors of Bahia”
by Edmundo Cavalcanti
I find myself every day with the discovery of so much talent in the northeast of our Brazil, seems to me that there exists a different energy, that inspires and stirs the people of this region to create wonderful works, with many colors and regional issues. Maybe it's the influence of the origin of these cities and their ancestors. The contagious happiness of the people is second to none.
Born in Cruz das Almas, Bahia, self-taught in art with influences Fauves, Cubist and Expressionist, but with own style, his painting refuses all academic convention, subject to the instinctive laws of color harmony compose the frame. Made progress in the Palace of acclaim and drawing workshops and painting at MAM – Solar do Unhão, both between 1996 and 1997 (Salvador BA), began painting 1992 with crayons, soon realized his first one in the Municipal Library of Cruz das Almas (1992) and 1996 started painting on canvas oil, soon going to acrylic, technique that uses today.
