Raymundo Colares
& collect
Raymundo Colares (1944 in Grão Mogol, Minas Gerais - 1986 in Montes Claros, Minas Gerais) was a Brazilian artist in the experimental scene of Brazilian art from the late nineteen-sixties. In 1964 he moved to Salvador de Bahia with a scholarship to study engineering, but he soon gave up his studies to pursue art, inspired by the works of Piet Mondrian and Paul Klee. He settled in Rio de Janeiro in 1965 where he worked as a jewellery designer at H. Stern. The following year he was admitted into the Escola de Belas Artes where he met Antonio Dias, Antonio Manuel, Wanda Pimentel and Hélio Oiticica. In 1967 he joined artist Ivan Serpa’s independent studio at the Museo de Arte Moderna. He participated in the landmark exhibition of the Brazilian avant-garde, Nova Objetividade Brasilera. His paintings of buses cut the perceptual field, juxtaposing perspectives, movements and color planes. It is a visual narrative that does not unfold in time, but is fragmented in space. Between 1971 and 1973, he lived in New York, Milan and Trento. Back in Brazil, after a long poetic visual relationship with the bus, he was finally hit by one. He died in 1986 in the hospital in Montes Claros.
