Brazil – Alexandre Reider

January 23rd, 2013

One thing I like about finding local sources here in Brazil is meeting the creative artists in their workspace. It is fascinating to observe the creation of each piece. This talented man at the age of 14 began learning of his talent with the brush. Years of apprenticing with his “master” enabled him to view the world that only a true artist can see. His ability to see shadows and depth when translated with oil enables the viewer to see the world in all if its beauty. His use of light, his perspective, his color creates a truly spiritual experience. From his German background to his Brazilian life style reminds the viewer of what life is all about. Alexandre is now 36, can you imagine how the depth of his artistry will be later in life? I felt so fortunate to have worked with such a talented man.
