  • About the work

Camilo has produced a series of artworks in his more recent works, which focus on a literal ‘figure’ appearing to the viewer within an otherwise abstract painting.  The figurative representation presents itself in accordance with how the viewer interprets the work.  All of the artworks are contributing to the ongoing relationship Camilo has with the workings of the human mind.  We inevitably find ourselves trying to interpret what the figure within the work represents and ultimately what that figure might be thinking or feeling.


About the Artists

1982 , Brazil

Maico Camilo, born in Brazil 1982.  He has travelled extensively, up into Europe and then lived and worked for an extended period of time in New Zealand and Australia.  These experiences have opened him up to the different cultures and environments that have helped him explore the larger questions we all face in life: our reason for being. Camilo has set about exploring his own journey through his art, challenging his own paradigms and his reason for being and not being afraid to explore different vocabularies and communication forms through his art.  He is challenging us all to confront the obvious, in terms of what is going on around us.  What you see is what you get, but is it?  How many of us compromise our real self?  How many of us fall victim to the perceptions of others, worried about what others think?  How many of us truly stand for what we believe in and remain true to ourselves? When you see the complexities in Camilo’s artwork, you see a mirror of the complexities of life.  The layers of each work question our own strength of conviction, for what we stand for.  Each piece forces the viewer to look elsewhere within the artwork, therefore the viewer will slowly analyse their own response to the work, sensing the intellect that the artwork has to offer. So, come and explore for yourself and discover!  Camilo Art Studio provides a warm and friendly environment and breaks down some of the intimidation some people associate with traditional galleries.  Take time to come and get to know the artist. Maico’s artwork currently hangs in the Boardroom of the International College of Management (Manly, Sydney). There is also a major Sydney contemporary piece, called Sydney In Vivid, being placed in the new building of St Andrews College (sponsored by http://www.braydiver.com), and other major private collectors.
