Artist Bio

Self Portrait

The art of Henrique Serra demands unite the secular gesture of the craftsman with the visionary artist's look. But his gaze appears to be introspective, looking at the way yesterday for tomorrow, seeking in the roots of humanity the answers to the present and future questions. The concerns with respect to the environment, with recycling, with sustainable development, so in vogue in our day, are always present, not only in theme but also in the production process and the used materials. The result reveals primary / archetype images, which are now dormant in the unconscious of all of us, and make the desired link between the primitive that is within each one, and the contemporary desire for union with nature.

works in oil, acrylic, collage, photo and other medias.
