Rene Nascimento
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Brighton Beach



ARTIST STATEMENT: Rene Nascimento is a Brazilian painter based in NYC. He holds a Fine Arts degree from the School of Fine Arts of the Federal University of Minas Gerais Brasil. He has also studied at the fine art institute of FAAP SP, Parque Lage RJ, and Art Students League of NY. He has been exhib- iting in Brasil, United States, and Europe. Worked in Brasil with textile designer and decoration. Brilliant, sensible, and life are the words used by curators, art connoisseurs, and dilettantes across the world to describe Rene Nascimento’s creations. His remarkable use of light and ability to bring forth casual subtleties out of small pockets of cities like New York has brought the atten- tion of prominent collectors. Born in Belo Horizonte MG Brazil and currently based in New York City, the influence of Nasci- mento’s surroundings were inevitable. “In my earlier years as an artist I was inspired by the culture of my state, Minas Gerais—this included Baroque architecture, landscapes, and still-lifes. Many of my early paintings reflected these themes. As I developed my technique I embraced a variety of themes, one of which is the “bicycle”—which I highlighted as an entity of its own. This theme has been embraced through the years from the mountains of Minas Gerais, to the channels of Amsterdam, and now the street of New York. I have been so inspired by the atmosphere of New York that many of my cur- rent paintings reflect the colors of New York in different venues.“ –Rene Nascimento Nascimento has obtained several accolades and awards for his art—most notably for those promoting Brazilian culture in the USA—and training from some of the most prestigious insti- tutions in the world. He holds a Fine Arts degree from the School of Fine Arts of the Federal University of Minas Gerais Brasil. While there, he had the privilege of being taught by professors Amilcar de Castro, Alvaro Apocalipse, and Marisa Trancoso. Rene has also studied at the fine art institute of FAAP SP, Parque Lage RJ. When he moved to New York in 2003 he furthered his artistic endeavor by attending the Art Students League of NY, which was founded in 1875 and home to many icons like O’Keefe, Pollock, and Rothko.Rene Nascimento is a Brazilian painter based in NYC.
