“Under Water”, a signature artwork by Joaquim Lourenço
“Under Water” is a typical “Joaquim”. His characteristic style consists of bright and vibrant colors, combined with black lines, which give his work a certain intensity. Every blob of color is very deliberate. He studies colors the same way he studies painting techniques or materials. Through art history, scientific approach, emotions, and what a specific color can add to his work. Color is clearly a big part of his message. As are the black lines: in all of Joaquim’s art, there is always the drawing.
He is not necessarily aiming for exact representation, yet looking for shapes, lines, and volume. Or the contrast between a body and a background. Trying to find the best way to communicate what he wants to share with his audience. His inspiration comes from the human body; the curves, shapes, and peculiar details.
