Vita Simone Campos

The sensitive theme addressed by Simone Campos is revealed through romantic landscapes, strengthened and blessed by touches of tenderness, full of movement and rhythms. The vividness of the colors is combined to her mark with great naturalness. The brushes are born at the end of your hand emphasizing and ornamenting the result of her full, happy and alive painting.

Due to the perfect harmony of the artist with the style, both the exploration of the theme and the deal of romantic color, covers an infinite, creative and free expression. The sensitivity of Simone Campos produces the magic of space dimensions and colors, making possible to see the colors of the air of a distant field.

This lightness in her work adorns the theme, leading us to a loosening of thought and channeled message absorption, candor, peace, warmth and experiential balance. Her work contagious us with its sympathy and sensitivity, remaining firmly in our mind.
