NO ESCAPE FROM NOISE – João Belga
“The work of visual artist João Belga is made up of multiple layers, significations, and meanings.
In his painting, musical, visual, literary and philosophical references are combined in a markedly urban remix, which revives the collective spirit and the Art / Life binomial.
An extremely confident drawing often serves as the basis for a painting that expands its strict and traditional limits and that spills over into collage, silkscreen, photography, fanzines, visual notebooks, artist’s books and, finally, the screen surface, from small to large format, in the context of an installation.
[…] David Lynch is one of the references of João Belga’s work, with his unclassifiable time and pseudo-narrative, where reality and fiction are merged and confused.”
