Artist Gallery » Hamilton Aguiar
Hamilton Aguiar was born in 1965 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. In 1987, he moved to the United States to pursue his passion for art. During his many years of studying and working in art restoration, Aguiar began to explore various painting techniques.
His artwork has evolved over the years, as he is constantly experimenting and pushing himself to add new imagery and technique to his work. He combines the ancient art of gilding, metallic leafing and patina altering with acid , finishing with liquid resin that transcends all boundaries.
The stark, resin coated and strong tonal color of single or multiple trees brings minimalism to a new level of depth, energy and excitement. There is complete harmony and balance that flows through him onto his surface. His work is crisp, clear and bright, yet evokes an inner peace. These qualities are intrinsic in every image as Aguiar’s character comes through in his paintings.
Aguiar’s stunning, three-dimensional steel sculptures bring his “Solitude” tree series to life. Combined with Aguiar’s paintings, these sculptures create an impressive installation.
