ABOUT THE COURSE FACILITATOR – MARCELLUS NISHIMOTO
Nishimoto studied Visual Communication and Graphic Design at the University of Brasilia (1999), the city where he lived for 17 years. Grandson of Japanese people, who provided the artist with direct contact with Japanese culture, in 2008 he returned to his hometown, Goiânia, where he now lives and works. Act as designer and art director in various modalities of design, such as fashion, branding, editorial and illustration. He also worked as a professor at a higher level in several disciplines of graphic design (History of Art and Design, Typography, Graphic Analysis, Projects and TCC Orientation). He currently develops teaching work in the areas of design , watercolor and art history in the course A Arte de Ver located at Espaço Cor .
From an early age, Nishimoto was interested in semiotics - the study of the meaning of symbols and images; as well as the plastic arts (self-taught). Currently, he dedicates himself to design and art independently. His works seek the origin - his own and ours -, the understanding of the human essence and the time that is so ephemeral to us. In his works, the artist explores these themes with traditional Western and Eastern techniques, including ink pointillism, watercolor, drawing (in all its modalities) and sumi-ê (ancient oriental painting technique).
His works are visibly laborious with traditional techniques, in order to capture and make visible the immaterial: diversity, time and the meaning of life. The theme that he lately explores in his works is the Brazilian fauna and flora. The artist does extensive research on the richness of native life in Brazil like the first naturalist scientists who arrived in the country and, fascinated by the biodiversity of the Americas, portrayed the living beings here. Birds, plants, insects and other forms of life are the elements that Nishimoto brings to the focus of his art and that lead us to reflect on the variety and future of these species. The artist has already participated in several collective and individual exhibitions in Goiânia and abroad and has his works included in collections in several places in Brazil and abroad.
OBJECTIVE OF THE DRAWING COURSE
The objective of the course is to present the various techniques of drawing and train the apprentice to produce works through this artistic modality.
Basic, intermediate and advanced drawing techniques will be demonstrated with theoretical and practical classes. We will approach techniques related to classical realism with evolution towards more expressive and subjective ways of using the stroke. The apprentice will have contact with the classic drawing materials: graphite, charcoal, dry pastel, oil pastel, colored pencil, metal quill and fountain pen. Throughout the process, the learner will also come into contact with principles related to visual perception, composition, style and creative concepts.
Practical and theoretical issues of painting will not be addressed. Facilitator Marcellus Nishimoto has another specific watercolor painting course available (theory and practice) for apprentices interested in this modality.
