Leonel da Silveira

These are works from my portuguese-french-australian friend Leonel da Silveira. Most people have one, some two, cultural references, being born and raised in one country then, eventualy, migrating to another... He´s the only person I know that can claim three cultural backgrounds, and he´s equaly at ease with many aspects of portuguese, french and english languages and cultures. Besides being an artist, he used to fly helicopters and he´s probabily the most cultured person I know (literature, visual arts, cooking, history, classic music, cinema, etc.).
All 50cm by 50cm, acrylic and colage on wood. Click to enlarge:
