About The Artwork

THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona Davis Lisboa, “Marcel Duchamp #5", 2016, oil on canvas, 15,74 x 11,81 x 1,57 in (40 x 30 x 4 cm) What/who inspired the work? This work was inspired by Marcel Duchamp photograph I downloaded on Instagram. What do you hope viewers will feel/think? I hope that viewers think that this painting is a mystical call to Duchamp, who comes from beyond. Although his face conveys melancholy and silence, it intuits that is about to tell us something. Let's hear it. Some people have criticized this painting because they think this portrait represents Duchamp as a ghost. When I look at a painting and I feel I agree with it, then I stop worrying about criticism of others. It's like I'm always inwardly directed by myself. I like it because it is a true portrait. You can recognize the face of Duchamp in it. I do not know very well I painted like a ghost. Maybe because in the act of painting I was linking in my mind a call to my dead father, like a mixed memories. The "biological" father and the "cultural" one. The photograph I downloaded from Internet does not have this personal substrate. Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style? I chose the oil painting medium because it allows me several rectifications, until I get what I'm looking for. I chose this subject: “Portraits of artist who have created their own museums". After to have the paintings collection finished, my idea is use them to print a new set of stamps for "The Stamps Section from Davis Museum”. This section consist in 25 royal custom stamps produced by the Royal Mint - Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre (RCM - FNMT), meeting all the requirements and guarantees of their own security from the effects of postage. The postage stamps will be inserted into the literal RATE A, whose value is equivalent to the national standard rate card. RATE A is for domestic shipments of standard letters and postcards up to 20 grams.Therefore, the time and level of service in the postal network will be equivalent to the current postage of 0.34 € (2016). This limited edition of only 25 stamps is not available for ordinary use, but exclusively for public and private collections. I chose the style of photorealistic paintings because I'm interested in knowing how far of realism I can reach. How will your artwork be packed for a movement? Artwork will be guaranteed to be shipped in accordance with high security standards, so that your shipment is as safe as possible while traveling from the artist's studio to your museum, gallery, hotel, business or home. For this, your oil paintings on canvas will be sent unrolled, stretched out on a wooden frame, flat, without frames and any special assembly.

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.
