The constant and permanent explosion of colors and textures in the painting of Gilvan Nunes transports us immediately to his unique universe, endowed with a chaotic sense meticulously ordered. Gilvan’s painting is above all joy, sometimes convulsive and compulsive, sometimes mild and tender. More than the perpetual labor of an artist trying to repair his inner chaos, Gilvan Nunes’s work surpasses itself by its strength and a high sense of balance and freedom. For him, the canvas is the beginning of all possible worlds and colors is an infinite universe of dreams, where fear never existed.
