Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato

Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato David Zwirner

An exhibition of paintings by Brazilian-born artist Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato (1900–1995). Spanning two floors of the gallery’s London location, this exhibition will mark the first time Lorenzato’s work is being shown in the United Kingdom and the first solo presentation of his work outside of Brazil.

Among the foremost Brazilian artists of his generation, Lorenzato developed a singular body of paintings centred on his fastidious observations of the everyday subjects he encountered in his hometown of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, including land- and townscapes, favelas, and the people he came across in his meandering walks through town. Using a rich palette of self-made pigments to describe his surroundings, Lorenzato’s distinct compositions are characterised by reduced geometric forms and richly textured surfaces that he achieved through the use of brushes, combs, and forks.
