The Magic of Engraving


Pedro Proença (b. 1962), painter, writer and musician is a Portuguese artist. He is one of the most prominent artists of his generation. In the visual arts he has been dedicating himself to art. illustration, to illustration; installation and maintenance engraving, as we can see in the magnificent series that he presents to us today and takes the painting itself and its history as its theme, evoking the fantastic universe of Bosch, Brueghel or Arcimboldo, from whom you will have an interest. Perhaps he inherited a certain fantastic and dreamlike realism that partly characterizes his iconography. As well as the grotesque, humor and social satire that are not surprising in one of the creators of the homeosthetic movement, revolutionary in the 80s. The engravings we present, the aquatint, also reflect these aspects. aquaforte and dry tip, a kind of bestiary that contributes to the fascination and mystery of these images, true icons of an unconscious adult and innocent at the same time.
