Artist of the moment……..Caio Fonseca

 

 

The next few posts we will be covering Fonseca artist family from Uruguay. Caio and Bruno are the sons and Gonzalo Fonseca the father, this post will cover Caio Fonseca.

Caio Fonseca chose to study independently with artists rather than go to college. The artist studied abroad in Europe for more than one decade before beginning to show is work in 1993.

Caio Fonseca was born in New York City in the year 1959.

The artist is part of many prominent collections including the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of Art both located in New York City.

Much of the artist’s work is in mixed media using gouache and ink.

Caio Fonseca is based out of New York City.

Price range information: Works range from $25,000 to $200,000.

Here we see a collaboration with publicly traded Real Estate Investment Trust Brookfield Properties and Caio Fonseca. Caio was chosen as the main artist and produced many works for this exhibit:

I enjoy the wonderful organic shapes the artist creates in his work. Combined with his vertical lines and repetition of shapes, the artist creates a fantastic combination of movement and color. What an artistic family!
