b. 1965

“I want to show the beauty in its purity through my art: the beauty seen on the light hidden in the most pure things of life; and by looking at my art you will understand that all you need in life is to look at the simple things with your heart and see the beauty of its light.”

   Through basic shapes and silhouettes of trees, contrasted against the luminosity of silver or copper leaf, Aguiar is able to create landscapes that fulfill his above-stated artist mission. The result of his aesthetic process are haunting and mysterious works that resonate deeply within any viewer. 

   Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil in 1965, Aguiar discovered his passion for rendering and creating at an early age. In 1987, Aguiar made the decision to relocate to the United States to develop his career as an artist. As an artist, Aguiar focused on landscape, and became fascinated with the human body’s relationship to it.  His artistic style developed slowly over the years, emerging organically out of a series of trials and errors. When he discovered the effect of using metal leaf as a ground for his canvases, he knew he had something special. From this, further exploration lead to the incorporation of copper leaf and resin to create an entirely different but equally intriguing aesthetic.

   The internationally recognized artist has work in prestigious private and public collections around the world. Most notably, several of his pieces can be found in the Museum of Latin American Art in California. Aguiar is hugely grateful to the art community in the United States, to which he credits much of his success. Additionally, he wants to show this appreciation by working with nationally known conservation foundations that address deforestation.


Aguiar is inspired by America with its changing seasons and varied landscapes from Colorado’s Aspen pines to the Florida palm trees to the changing leaves of the Northeast. His finished composition is a sophisticated interpretation of a contemporary landscape theme, which gives his art a universal appeal. While Aguiar’s forest view landscapes are “muralistic” in their coverage of scenery, the stark, resin-coated and strongly colored renditions of single or multiple trees brings minimalism to a new level of depth, energy and excitement. Infused with primary reds, yellows, blacks, and blues, [and] liberally swathed in metallic leaf, these images, some up to 96” wide, are powerful yet subdued. In their elegant line and form, simplicity radiates, yet there is no tiring of them upon viewing after viewing. The colors are luscious, the technique impeccable.
