Brazilian Pointillist Artist Gets International Following

Luiz Cavalli Lively colors, strong lines and joyous expressions characterize the paintings of Brazilian artist Luiz Cavalli, who is planning to exhibit in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, next year. "My work is expressionist, with lots of color, which makes it joyous. I think this may please the Arabs," stated the artist who lives in São Paulo.

The pictures by Cavalli, which are painted with acrylic on canvas, have already been sold to art galleries, hotels, homes and shops in New York and Miami. Still this year, the artist has been invited to exhibit in Paris, France, where he should present three works.

Cavalli was born in 1956, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, in southern Brazil, and has been living in São Paulo, in the southeast of the country, since 1965. In the beginning, he worked with painting and drawing, developing the technique of Pointillism, which consists of colored dots that make up an image in the eye of the observer. He studied at the IADíŠ Technical Communications Drawing School and graduated in Visual Communications from Armando ílvares Penteado College (Faap).

Cavalli is of Italian descent, but his wife's family is Arab. "I am already familiar with the culture," said the painter, who became fascinated by Dubai after having seen a television program about the emirate and talking to his lawyer and agent, Paulo Rossi. "I think it is a market that has potential and would be interesting to exhibit in," stated the artist.

In São Paulo he has already had exhibitions at the My Guest Space, Pitanga, Astrolábio Ateliê, Galeria 8 Rosas and at the Brazilian British center.

According to Cavalli's agent, even before promoting an exhibition in Dubai, there are already purchase orders for the artist's work. "We have orders from the United Arab Emirates, but we are currently analyzing them," said Rossi. Cavalli's works may be seen on the artist's site or on British site Saatchi-Gallery, through which some international orders are placed.

According to Rossi, the exhibition in Dubai, which should take place in March 2009, is almost closed, but now the idea is to try to see whether there is a possibility to take the exhibition to at least another two emirates. The Arab country should receive between 10 and 15 pictures, of sizes ranging from 50×50 cm (19.7×19.7 inches) to 160×120 cm (63×47 inches).
