A São Paulo, Brazil based artist, Linco7n’s paintings are comprised of strong lines used to create striking abstract figures and bold graphic patterns. Ranging from maze-like complexity to the outlines of simple geometric forms, they give each image a focused presence. While the idea of freedom is a constant theme in the artist’s work, it is combined with a sharp sense of control and a clearly organized approach to composition. In turn, there is a sense of balance in the lines he uses to create his images.
Linco7n’s work is enhanced by his use of color and texture. Working in acrylics and mixed media on canvas, he employs a palette of intense colors, and the juxtaposition of those colors adds movement and energy to each image. After experimenting with a range of painting styles, Linco7n says he’s “been using a sponge technique to draw the background or to create some texture.” However, much like his use of line, those experiments are grounded by his solid technique.
