About Andreia Santos
New York-based watercolor painter.
Born in southern Brazil, studied languages and visual arts in Brazil and Germany,
Andreia's art is a mix of abstract and pointillism, and the colors are a strong structural element.
The variety of repertoire includes people, landscapes, natural and cultural environments appearing as improbable proportions.
This universe expands into organic forms, revealing a subtle balance between color, gestural brushstrokes of strong, geometric abstractions and pointillism as characteristics.

' I started creating watercolor paintings as a collection because I felt that it was emotionally and mentally refreshingly and free of arrogance, during a period that I've been mostly needy to paint, emerged as an instinctive desire of express my feelings.
If I have chosen watercolor as medium to express myself, it is because for me there are infinite possibilities with greatest value and smallest gestures.
Also my love of things that are simple and shining has inspired me to try to combine my child passion, painting, through the practice of water coloring, on the proper acid free paper and canvas-paper."
