Brazilian artist Igor Villares Rosa proposes his personal narrative through the unique aesthetic of his work. A professional chef turned self-taught artist, Villares Rosa employs various techniques that he has developed through exploration and experimentation. There is a tantalising playfulness to his work that could well be inspired by his appreciation for sensory experience.

For Villares Rosa, art permeates life, where animals and nature feature heavily in his work, and is communicated with an urban edge. This influence derives from time spent in Caraiva, a remote picturesque village flanked by a mangrove lined river and the Atlantic Ocean.
