About The Artwork

THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona Davis Lisboa, “Marcel Broodthaers #6", 2016, oil on canvas, 15,74 x 15,74 x 13,77 in (40 x 40 x 3,5 cm) What/who inspired the work? This painting was inspired by a film still from “La Pluie, Projet Pour Un Texte” (The Rain, Project for a Text) by Marcel Broodthaers from 1969. What do you hope viewers will feel/think? I hope that viewers think about the conceptual connection between the Belgium artist and myself, and between the Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles and the Davis Museum. ? Why did you choose the medium, subject, style?? I chose the oil painting medium because I can get a good final result and especially because it is a durable medium. I chose the subject of the Broodthaers's portrait taken from his film “La Pluie, Projet Pour Un Texte” because this piece intrigues me very much. His film is very uncanny and I was interested to keep this kind of hermeticism in my painting. Unlike the movie, in my painting there is no rain and nothing is wet. There is no face certifying it is the Broodthaers’s portrait. It seems there is a free space in the head area where the portrait of any person could be painted. It's a free space like the Davis Museum. I would like to add that all Broodthaers existing images on Internet are black and white photographs. I never found a picture of him in color nor any portrait painted in oil on canvas. For this reason, this painting done in 2016 could be the first in this category. Once it is published on the Internet, this painting will be part of the Big Data for the future, creating a dialogue with the Belgian artist and his work. I chose a neutral, contained and almost flat painting style, with shades of blue to convey what I experienced on my trip to Brussels circa 1988: dim ambient light and constant rain. And also I interested me convey what I consider the most obvious feeling Broodthaers's work: his deep melancholy. How will your artwork be packed for a movement?

My name is Davis Lisboa (1965, São Paulo, Brazil), living and working in Barcelona, Spain. I'm a multifaceted illustrator and painter who, through my work, try to erase the boundaries between graphic arts and fine arts, high and low culture, art and the market, crafts and technology. In 2009 I created the Davis Museum | Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona. I have studied Desenho de Comunicação at the ETE Carlos de Campos and Painting at the Centre d'Art i Disseny Escola Massana and at the Facultat de Belles Arts de la Universitat de Barcelona. Since 1982 I've been working as a storyboard artist creating storyboards for various advertising agencies in Brazil, Spain, Russia, England or the United States. In 1987 I moved to Barcelona, where I worked as a graphic illustrator in a design studio and two years later, I opened my own illustration and painting studio. In 2005 I began to hold exhibitions as an artistic, figurative and contemporary painter at art galleries, cultural centers and art museums, and in 2009, I created the Davis Museum | The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, a cultural entity recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya, now, expanding my activity towards cultural management. I have participated in several exhibitions, including Museum Show at Arnolfini, Bristol, England; Eleven: The John Erickson Museum of Art (JEMA) 10 Year Retrospective at The Harn Museum of Art, Gainesville, USA and at the Galería Bob Rauschenberg, Fort Myers, USA; Remix - 10 years in the mix at the en la Spor Klübü, Berlin, Germany; Small, Unusual and Specialist Museums Survey at the CRATE Studio and Project Space, Margate, England; Incubarte at Centro del Carmen, Valencia, Spain; FluxFest 2019, Pride Mail Project and Big Ideas in Small Art at The Rose Shelton Gallery, Toronto, Canada; Aquí y Ahora 6 - Power, corruption & lies at the Galería Blanca Soto, Madrid, Spain; VI Biennale Internazionale dell'Arte Contemporanea di Firenze, Italy; Holland Art Fair, The Hague; La Secció de les Pintures del Davis Museum, at the Casa del LLibre, Barcelona, Spain; NeoLatinísiiimo Art Biennial at the City Lights Gallery, Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA; Mirades des del confinament, con Joan Fontcuberta, Festival Cruïlla, Òmnium Cultural, Igualada, España, among others.
