Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
McColl Fine Art is proud to represent Brazilian artist, Renato Meziat at their gallery. They will be carrying thirteen of Meziat's paintings, eleven of which are still-life; a style which Meziat is most recognized for. Although his work has only recently been introduced to North America, his paintings have already had great success in International auctions. His paintings are in private collections throughout North and South America.
Meziat started out as a musician and studied at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston. He later switched his focus to painting after being influenced by his father, who was also a painter.
Renato Meziat's paintings reveal an immense technical ability allied to a penetrating pictorial intelligence. A self-taught painter, Meziat's technical proficiency is all the more impressive for being the result of years of trial and error and intense observation. His still-life paintings have an elegant simplicity, classically arranged against pure deep monochromatic backgrounds. In all of his still life paintings, Meziat sees and allows us to see with a transforming luminous clarity.
He has said, he wants his work to affect people the way his first artistic love of music did. He says, "I don't want to make people think. I want to make paintings so beautiful that when people see them they just can't think of anything else."
