Henrique Diogo

"I delight in feeling the invisible. I like the abandonment of form, the dissolution of the material world and subjective meanings. The relationship between conscious and unconscious, religions, geometry and hidden mysteries are my sources of inspiration. I am dedicated to the pursuit of originality."

Henrique Diogo, a 24-year-old emerging artist from Poços de Caldas, Brazil, is making waves in the contemporary art scene with his unique approach to abstract art. Self-taught and driven by a passion for experimentation, Diogo's artistic journey is guided by mathematical and philosophical principles, creating a fascinating fusion of theoretical concepts in his work.

Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of sources, including religion and geometry, Diogo's art aims to synthesize different historical currents of human thought into a cohesive whole. Through his paintings, he seeks to explore the interconnectedness of various branches of knowledge, inviting viewers to contemplate the underlying unity of existence.

In 2023, at the age of 23, Diogo made his mark on the international art scene with his participation in the group exhibition "Mapping" in Madrid, organized by Galeria Azur. His artwork "The Birth of the Rose" garnered attention for its intricate technique, rich textures, and vibrant chromatic spectrum, captivating audiences and critics alike.

The following year, Diogo showcased his talent at the collective exhibition "Impermanência" at the State of São Paulo's Chamber of Deputies (Alesp), where he presented his piece "Metamorphosys, Reality Created Above the Observation" to politicians and journalists. In a significant moment, Diogo had the honor of gifting his artwork "Minas Gerais" to Nikolas Ferreira, a prominent Brazilian politician hailed as one of the country's most influential young leaders.

As Henrique Diogo continues to explore the intersection of art and philosophy, his work serves as a testament to the power of creativity to transcend boundaries and inspire profound contemplation. With each brushstroke, he invites us to journey into the depths of human consciousness and explore the mysteries of existence.
