EFERNANDES’ BIOGRAPHY
EFernandes (Edmir) has been living in Victoria, BC, Canada since 2001, since he left Brazil. He has learned how to work judiciously as taught by his Visual Arts private instructors. Within the last 10 years EFernandes has completed more than 150 projects on different subjects and now he has a great honor to have his works juried by demanding jurors in BC and to have his works curated by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Sooke and Sidney Fine Arts.
In 2003 Edmir painted an Acrylic on Paper Board 30”x40” piece entitled “After the Rainbow”. This painting came out of a devastating series of forest fires across British Columbia. This particular art piece reflected the emotions and frustrations of the wildfire victims.
Painting connects EFernandes to the world of colours allowing him to express his loose painting style freely. He works in oils and acrylics, both canvases and wood panels, as well as with sculptures. The work is rich in colours and textures, with hues emanating from multiple layers of paint. He concentrates on getting into a state of “readiness,” creating and conceptualizing the colours and brushstrokes needed to execute his work by setting up the desired variety of materials, which occur within a state of mind, during which time the artist is oblivious to what is being created.
EFernandes has a home-based gallery-studio under the name EFERNANDES, which is also the signature of his paintings. His paintings are in many private and public collections, to mention Singapore, France, Canada, Chile, USA and Brazil.
Version en Français

EFernandes (Edmir) a immigré du Brésil au Canada en 2001 et vit à Victoria, CB. Il a appris à travailler judicieusement sur les conseils de ses enseignants d'arts visuels. À ce jour EFernandes a réalisé près de 200 tableaux sur différents sujets, et se remet constamment en cause grâce à son désir de simplicité dans le travail. Il ne démarre pas une peinture avec une idée préconçue, mais se laisse guider par ses inspirations et permet à son travail d’avancer par lui-même.

La peinture relie EFernandes au monde des couleurs en lui permettant d'exprimer son style personnel avec sa peinture libérée. Il travaille principalement les huiles, sur toiles et panneaux de bois. Le travail est riche en couleurs, textures, avec des reflets provenant de multiples couches de peinture. Il se concentre sur l'obtention d’un état "d’aptitude à la réalisation", créant et conceptualisant les couleurs et les touches nécessaires à l’exécution de son travail par la mise en place des matériaux, celle-ci se produisant dans un état d'esprit, avec lequel l'artiste est inconscient de ce qui est en cours de création.

Ses peintures sont présentes dans de nombreuses collections privées et publiques, pour ne citer que Singapour, la France, les Philippines, le Canada, le Chili, les Etats-Unis et le Brésil.
