Extraordinary talented. A master of his genre. Due to his method, surrealistic intuitive, without using any previous sketches or ideas, he gives shape to his past and future through his subconscious mind.
August Vilella creates oil paintings by means of a surreal-intuitive method. Thanks to this method and without using any previous sketches or ideas, he tries to give shape to his past and future through the subconscious mind. His creative process turns out to be completely intuitive, improvised and unintentional. For this reason he is used to lose the control of his brush, so that the message of each painting comes out to him only once the artwork is completed. As a figurative work of art, the result of this practice evokes a dreamlike aura and a magic, metaphoric, and even philosophical language, which invites the observing visitor to reflect.
