THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona Davis Lisboa, "Robert Filliou #1", 2012, oil on canvas, 11,8 x 11,8 in What / who inspired the work? The painting "Menino Com Tabuleiro" (1947) by Brazilian painter Cândido Portinari was my inspiration for this work. What do you hope viewers will feel / think? When I was a child we had a color reproduction of the "Menino Com Tabuleiro" (Boy With Board) that hung on the wall where we lived in São Paulo, Brazil. I spent a long time trying to discover the reason why Portinari had decided to hide the child's face in that picture. Of course, it was impossible to know and that mystery has never left my memory. I hope viewers repeat the same feeling of anguish that I experimented when I was 6 years old. Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style? I chose oil painting because it is a widespread technique to represent people. That makes me wonder: Can a painting still be contemporary? At the same time, oil painting is radically opposed to the principles of Fluxus, an international group of artists in the '60s, in which Robert Filliou was a member.

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.
