"The long you look to these pictures the more interesting things they tell you." – Ivan Markovsky
Cesar Finamori is a New York-based contemporary artist. He is primarily known for his award-winning career in the advertising industry as a designer, art director, and creative director. Born in 1967 in São Paulo, Brazil, he graduated from the College of Belas Artes.
Along with his graphic design work, Finamori creates his artwork. In 2002, he had his first solo show "Stolen Feet" in Sao Paulo. In 2006, he moved to New York to continue his work as a graphic designer and art director. In 2016, he began painting his series “Vivian Girls”, influenced mainly by Francis Bacon, Juan Miró and Wassily Kandinsky.
“The artist’s ability to utilize abstraction in the service of figuration is a testament to his conceptual talents. From this I gather that Finamori has a much different understanding of what makes anyone alive than our current paradigms of science and culture dictate”
wrote Chloe Hyman for Canvas and Crumpets.
Since 2017, the “Vivian Girls” series has been exhibited at a number of venues and art fairs in New York and Los Angeles, including the AdArtShow at Sotheby's NYC in 2018.
