Hamilton Aguiar strives to paint serene images that can be peacefully enjoyed and also draw the viewer's attention to the beauty of natural landscapes. Aguiar's unique process involves applying oil paint expressively to a panel, often covered with a thin layer of reflective silver, copper or gold leaf, and finishes his work with a thick layer of resin. The resulting paintings are rich in color and depth, and depict landscapes that are both tranquil and powerful.
Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Hamilton Aguiar moved to the United States to pursue his passion for painting in 1987. Taking on his artistic career through exhibitions in New York in the mid 2000's, Hamilton is now represented by several galleries across North America, and has shown in exhibitions and art fairs in the United Kingdom, Germany, Korea and Canada. After a few years developing ambitious studio projects in his native city of Belo Horizonte, Hamilton relocated to Miami where he works to this day.
