SOUNDWALL UNVEILS ARTWORK BY FAMED BRAZILIAN ARTIST
CLAUDIO SOUZA PINTO
BOULDER, CO (June 10, 2014) – Soundwall, art that hangs on your wall and plays music wirelessly, is excited to announce an exclusive partnership with famed Brazilian artist Claudio Souza Pinto. These remarkable works are now available for purchase in the new Claudio Souza Pinto gallery on the Soundwall website (www.soundwall.co). Art and music enthusiasts can now enjoy his beautiful paintings as a hi-fidelity, self-contained speaker system.
Claudio Souza Pinto, a self-described “romantic surrealist”, paints in a poetic language that talks, or plays, with the observer’s feelings as they examine people who are nothing but their clothes.
“I paint the clothes of human beings, because society only gives value to the appearance. The masks represent and camouflage behavior. I transform daily situations with a surrealist filter, creating fantastic and humorous images” states Claudio Souza Pinto
His paintings delight people like architect Yves Bayard, who designed the National Museum of Contemporary Arts in Nice who says that, “Claudio’s paintings impress me for their freedom. He is a great master on happiness service.” And Jacques Bral, the movie director awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, comments, “Claudio’s paintings have a fantastic realism and a visual discussion about melancholy and love. Sadness or happiness is always present in his paintings, even if in spirit.”
Painter, poet, humorist — the definition given to Claudio Souza Pinto’s style by the artistic and intellectual communities of Paris — accurately translate this Brazilian’s fine art paintings, which transform daily situations into surreal, romantic and funny images. His work has been enchanting Brazilians and Europeans for years and is now on the threshold of being discovered by the American public as well and Soundwall offers them in a beautiful and functional way.
