Casino Estoril opens, on the 14th of November, at 5 pm, an exhibition by Paulo Ossião, with the title “City”. This is a remarkable individual show by this artist, considered the best contemporary Portuguese watercolor artist. With free entry, not to be missed, until December 8th, at the Art Gallery.
Paulo Ossião is an artist who has been deeply connected, since the beginning of his career, to the Casino Estoril Art Gallery. Since then, it has adopted watercolor as an almost exclusive modality, moving in it with a rare knowledge of experience.
He is a watercolor artist, of blues and all their shades, and one of his favorite themes is Lisbon. Paulo Ossião has portrayed Lisbon in a unique way. Its watercolors transmit, in a very specific language, the luminosity of Lisbon, whether in the blue of the sky and the river, up to the ocher of the roofs of the Lisbon neighborhoods or the facade of the old houses.
The hills and monuments, the Tagus and its bridges, the riverside areas, the Castle, the Cathedral, the cacilheiros, the trams, and so much more, are icons of the capital and one of its favorite themes.
“Cidade” is another remarkable exhibition by Paulo Ossião who dominates watercolor with an unusual technique, very personal, whether in the urban landscape or in figuration, in works of large or small dimension.
