Painter Robson Pereira will display his art in the Wotiz Gallery of the Milton Public Library during the month of August 2015.
Pereira is a Brazilian-born self-taught artist who emigrated to the U.S. in 2007 and now lives in Brockton. As many artists do, he has held lots of other jobs to support his craft and each one has influenced his artistic style, with its expression of elements related to nature where he finds a great deal of inspiration. His work is very colorful, modern, and quite unique because it is not done with a brush. Instead he uses various objects to paint with: pieces of wood, plastic bags, dried tree branches, paint tubes, disposable plastic spoons, tassel grass, or anything that will bring an interesting texture to the piece. The effects are similar to modern period painters such as Jackson Pollock and Wassily Kandinsky.
Come and enjoy this great exhibit during August, and for more information about displaying your art at the library, contact Jean Hlady, Adult Services Librarian, at 617-698-5757, ext 3. The library is located at 476 Canton Avenue, Milton.
