Lima Junior

Lima Junior é Artista Plástico.

Lima Junior is a Visual Artist.

José Carlos de Lima Junior

Self-taught painter, sign LIMA JR.

Technique: Oil on canvas TEXTURED.

His artistic tendency can tell it's a vocation, since his work portrays in a way modern Figurative, the dreams and fantasies of children that exist within us. Portrays a fantastic way playful scenes, circus, musicians, landscapes and scenes of everyday life, scenes from past seasons, the present and perhaps the future. His characters are figures of his imagination but the theme, clothing, are the result of deep study of gestures, manners and costumes of bygone days and maybe come, his artwork belongs everywhere, all seasons…

THE EXTRAORDINARY ART OF LIMA JUNIOR

As an artist, but especially as a gallery owner and curator, I know numerous excellent artists from many countries. Most of them have developed a personal style and painting techniques of their
Lima_Junior_New_York_Cool_Jazz_2own, which is not at all easy, as “almost everything” has already been done in art. The art of Lima Junior is all the more remarkable. Not only are his whimsical figures and pictorial compositions unusual. The idiosyncrasy of his paintings arises from the mix of style elements reminiscent of Picasso’s cubism with details that could come from comic books, but also from the combination of warm and cool colors, as well as the play of light and shadow. Showing the joy of life and radiating optimism, Lima Junior’s paintings prompt a smile everywhere; they are fitting in the office as well as in the homes of young and old alike. Through his art, Brazilian artist Lima Junior affirms that the hardships of everyday life are easier to overcome with humor and a positive attitude to life. Lima Junior will be the artistic representative of his home country, Brazil, in the exhibition “Art from South America”, April 20 – July 14, 2013, at Galerie KONTRASTE in the city of Erwitte, Westphalia, Germany. It has been my great pleasure as gallery owner and curator of this exhibition to invite his participation.

TESTIMONIANZA CRITICA

Osservando le opere dell’artista brasiliano Lima Junior ci si rende subito conto della sua notevole capacità narrativa e del suo grande impegno compositivo, doti queste non sempre affidabili a tanti pittori contemporanei.C’è poi un’affettuosa appropriazione dei personaggi visti sia nella loro dimensione più probabile (e talvolta anche improbabile) sia nella loro grande voglia di libertà oltre che di liberazione dalle convenzioni e dalle abitudini. There is also his intent to highlight myths and everyday conditions and recurrent ironically very special, graffiante e dolce nel contempo, provocatoria ma accettata, impegnativa e amabile. Is it any wonderLima_Junior_Perfil also if it is born before the irony (ossia il programma narrativo), o l’operitività pittorico-compositiva (cioè il piano tecnico): ebbene la risposta nel caso di Lima Junior, è unica e a mio avviso indiscutibile: narrazione ironica e composizione sono profondamente amalgamate, anzi fuse fin dall’inizio diventando così un unico e indissociabile progetto creativo. Si aggiunga infine l’istintiva seppur controllatissima destrezza nella delineazione figurale, nella costruzione socio-ambientale e nella determinatezza cromatica e si avrà la percezione esatta – da parte degli addetti ai lavori come da parte della “gente” dei fruitori affezionati od occasionali – di un’artista completo e subito distinguibile. Un’altra considerazione però non posso non farla e cioè: la libera ed eccezionale fantasia creatrice del pittore brasiliano lo porta a soluzioni sempre inedite, a racconti stravaganti (ma del tutto possibili e talvolta ineluttabili), a situazioni sempre maliziosamente intelligenti. Questa sua fantasia, incontenibile e trascinante, è sostenuta da un colore profondamente, visceralmente, legato al messaggio primo, sempre e comunque “costruttivo”, forte e succoso, coinvolgente e avvincente. Uma pittura dunque che diverte e fa meditare, che affascina e intenerisce, che testimonia soprattutto una grande forza morale e un’acutezza intellettiva, nel suo autore, che è custodesingolare e appassionato, oltre che inesauribile, del grande giardino delle più umane sregolatezze, delle scene di vita del passato, del presente e forse anche del futuro.
