I grew up in the north of Brazil, surrounded by the most incredible nature. I moved to London when I was 18 and have lived in big cities ever since but when I paint I go back to my childhood, when my mum had to go to work (she was a school teacher) and I would be left with my grandfather, an indigenous Amazonian potter. There was never money in my family to buy toys so I played with the nature I discovered with my grandfather – with the clay from the edge of the river I would mimic him. Others may think it was a basic childhood but to me it was so rich, and this is reflected in my painting and even my photography, and where I am as an artist.

1974 Born in Fortaleza, Brazil. Eduardo Santos works with gravity the way other artists work with oils or ink. Gravity guides the line and pins down his disparate materials of sand, earth, paint and varnish. Each layer accretes like sediment. The dense dry texture of sand and the lumpen rivulets formed by earth mixed with paint generate a haptic experience something like standing inside a river cave or being pinned beneath the glassy swell of a wave. Santos credits his relationship to visceral, highly textural-materials to a childhood spent in the north of Brazil, in a terrain “where the river meets the ocean” and experiences with his grandfather, an indigenous Amazonian potter, Santos would mimic in the clay of the rive's edge. The humility of simple materials; a conflation of the natural and the ‘found’; the tactility of hand-made and rough-hewn things and, ultimately, primal landscapes, all play a role in the artist’s work. This series is also imbued with a strong sense of place. This is not painting about painting, but an invocation of earth, sky and water influenced by desert journeys in Morocco, South America, and the antipodes.
