Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

APPARENTIA: What you see at first sight, what appears externally, striking your senses. What the spirit imagines, but does not always correspond to reality.

=======

I try to be fast and spontaneous when I’m painting - those aspects should be reflected in the final piece. The observer should be able to feel the physicality of the painting process, when looking at the brush strokes and paint drippings.

When I throw paint, I can do it with some premeditation - but I can never really predict where the paint will actually fall on the canvas. So, my approach to painting is - in part - based on chance, on small random accidents; it doesn’t rely exclusively on my persistence or my technique.

That’s why I don’t feel completely responsible for my paintings - in the sense that, although I can answer for my initial intentions, the final result is always something that I could never anticipate, and something that’s out of my absolute control.

- Mario Henrique

Artist Profile

Born: 1983

Hometown: Cascais

Based in: Cascais, Portugal

Mario Henrique is an artist based in Cascais, Portugal.

Graduated in Design from Lisbon’s University of Fine Arts, he started his career in online marketing and web development agencies. Later on, as a creative director, he recruited and led teams in Portugal, Spain and Brazil.

As partner and head of design in one of these projects, he would eventually be part of a successful exit via acquisition, and then shifted his focus to contemporary painting, which had always been a parallel interest.

A prolific portraitist, Mario is fascinated by the unpredictability of the human behaviour: the brief glances, the impermanence of facial expressions, the sudden movements. This dynamic is also present in his Ballerinas Series, which lean toward the abstract expressionism.

Making use of uncommon and “rough” materials, like cardboards, reversed canvases and hardware tools, he paints abruptly and spontaneously. His approach relies on drippings, splashes and paint throws, so that the physicality of the painting process is transparent in the final piece.

Listed in various private collections across Europe, America and Asia, he was awarded an Honourable Mention for his participation in the Brasília Biennial of Contemporary Arts 2016 and he’s currently represented by the Bill Lowe Gallery and the Galeries Bartoux, amongst other renowned international galleries.

Mario owns a studio/gallery at the Marina, in Cascais (Portugal), where some of his paintings are publicly exhibited.
