“I work on unplanned subjects, elements, emotions, life experiences, which belong to my subconscious.
These subjects relate to or have related to my personal or explored life, encompassing our notion of past, present and future life…”
WHAT LIES BEHIND THE SURFACE
URBAN AND EXPRESSIVE ARTWORK WITH HIDDEN ELEMENTS.
A deconstructed version of a landscape, an infinite horizon, met by what appears to be a sublime surface and yet the chaos emerges in a subtle way from an unknown place.
His latest artworks have been acquired by the biggest Art Auction House in South Africa (Strauss) and now added to their Art Collection, along with other institutions and private collectors around the world.
CIRCLE OF LIFE
Circle of life series was inspired when Maico Camilo had spent some time in Tokyo Japan. He completely immersed himself with the Japanese culture and people, he was fascinated by Japanese calligraphy and its history.
This artwork is intricate in their construction – while there is a clear structure to the execution of these works, they remain ambiguous as to their meaning and their construct.
Just as the work itself is equivocal, so too in design, as both works are constructed from two separate panels, coming together as one.
The secret is in the title! The comic figure is clearly evident but leaves you second guessing the form and plays on the concept of us all at times in our lives being something other than ourselves.
