Fábio Cembranelli, a renowned Brazilian artist, started painting at university, where he studied architecture. His paintings have been featured in exhibitions and collections worldwide, and his unique and luminous floral watercolors are known internationally.
Explaining why he chose transparent watercolor as his favorite medium, Fábio had this to say: "What compels me to paint with this approach is the possibility of painting quickly. It suits my personality best -- the fluidity of the medium provides a unique sensation of unexpected color mixing, particularly when I define only the main masses and allow the unpredictable to happen on the rest of the paper. Timing is quite important in my method. I lean intuitively toward realism, but the right speed forces me to create diffused effects and shapes. I love painting flowers and landscapes in watercolor, and I'm always enchanted by the attempt to capture the contrast between loose and definitive edges, as well as light and shadow effects.”
When Fábio paints, he aims to take the essence of each subject through his own interpretation. It’s like a personal subject depiction that will result in a unique work. Fábio teaches painting techniques in his studio, art galleries, and art societies, as well as workshops throughout Brazil and abroad.
He also is a regular contributor to several art magazines in South America, U.S., U.K., Norway, France, Japan, and Australia, among others. In the upcoming years, he will be tutoring several workshops in Europe, Asia, and North America. He also works as an illustrator for some publishing companies in South America.
