Paintings by André Gonzaga, aka 'Dalata'

This event has finished

On a quiet night in República, a buzzing, bustling corner emerges – it’s the opening night of Matilha Cultural's latest art exhibition, 'Cartas na Manga'.

A one-man show of the work of artist André Gonzaga 'Dalata', the paintings are curious, clever, peculiar: what a carnival in your dreams might look like. But as uplifting and playful as Dalata's strange cats and creatures are, make no mistake: this art has layers. From an initial reaction of confusion, faced with what looks like a surrealist version of the cast of Animal Farm engulfing one another, it becomes clear, taking a step back, that the comical creatures create a kind of optical illusion joker – an animal composed of everything but its own kind.
