João Salomão’s Circo De Visões encapsulates the symbolism of Salomão’s paintings into sensational landscapes that perform in his spiritual circus.

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro to a family of artists involved in the Tropicália movement, João Salomão moved to New York City in the early 90’s. Immersed in Lower East Side music, skateboarding and graffiti scenes, Salomão incorporates his sense of abstraction by observing daily life. Aspects of street-life are recorded into a daily diary then transformed through gesture into energetic paintings of color, shape, and texture.
