old school

I came across the work of Brazilian modernist artist, Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato, better known as Lorenzato, and I fell in love with his childlike compositions and gorgeous use of colour. With no formal training, Lorenzato’s paintings possess a rawness and simplicity that we often see among unschooled artists. ““He doesn’t belong to cliques,” wrote Lorenzato on the reverse side of an untitled painting in 1948. “He paints what he feels like painting. Amen.”
