Inserting KADE the global art circuit is recent. Due to an accident that kept him at rest for a long period a few years ago, the artist had the opportunity to watch the details of the world around him and his eyes focussed on actor Heath Ledgers tattoos when watching a documentary about him that served as first inspiration for the beginning of his creative path. Once recovered, He met an artist of the Republic of Latvia – vitaliy Yermolayev -, with which he took a course, in 2019, it was his first contact with invisible paint and lighting techniques (invisible paint and illuminating techniques). In a recent visit to the Van Gogh Museum, the artist felt impacted both by works as the artist's life story; "His self-portraits were of great influence because they are very different and you see yourself differently in their own way", defines the artist. "Or that reveals no dark, or that sail in the light of each? In this sailing game / revealed, It would be your job a Abstract Expressionism, or expressive abstractionism?”, asks Francisco Rosa. Armed with the new information and influences, knowledge of new techniques, The following consequences are obvious: exhibitions in Latvia Republic, New York, where lives since 2012, and now his first individual exhibition in São Paulo.

With distinctive creation method, the technique of "invisible paint"Challenges the artist's creative work. Composed by, at least, two different times, the work has two different results depending on the lighting which is exposed. In white light, normal, the perception is restricted to only a drawing or painting on canvas: paintings or drawings, concrete or abstract, colored or black / white. All linked to predetermined series by KADE. In a second step, the work is subjected to interference of the artist with invisible ink which creates a totally unique work, now complete, under the same support. The new pictorial form, hair thought to final painting artist, only becomes visible when subjected to the black light. In the words of KADE, "Well being transparent, when I am painting, It is very difficult to plan in advance. I have an idea of ​​how to get, but, at the end, the result is totally unexpected and, largely, nothing connected to the idea I had in the beginning ".

"For me, paintings are like people. We judge them at first sight as soon as we see for the first time. But we have no idea who is or who have had experiences in life….. When the lighting changes on the screen do you see the complete painting that was not visible before. And, as with people, you must know them first before prejudges them. Watch them as many daylight as night ", define KADE.
