“A-Ma Gau” at IaoHin Gallery is the debut Macau exhibition of the Luso-French artist Carlos Farinha.

Exhibiting in Macau for the first time, “A-Ma Gau” (an old name of Macau) is the title of the exhibition of the Luso-French artist Carlos Farinha. This exhibition is the result of a trip to Macau in November 2013, using the name that the Portuguese first gave to Macau. This trip can be seen in a series of images that are metaphors, irony, and reflections where he represented his experience at the crossroads of sensations and contradictions that we can see at Macau. Macau is today a changing location, between the legacy of the Portuguese administration and the grandeur of the new China. In November 2013, Carlos was invited by the Consulate of Portugal through the arrangements by LusoTalents to do a painting to commemorate the friendship between Macau (China) and Portugal. This work is still being displayed at the Consulate.

Completing a degree in Fine Arts at the University of Lisbon in 2004 and a degree in Sculpture/Media, Carlos began to show his works in 1991 at the Palacio Das Galveias, Lisbon.  He performs and produces scenography continuously for the Festival of Comics Replica Luxury Watches sale Amadora since the year 1998.  Replica tag heuer Carlos was co-founder of EPIPIderme dating back to the Rolex Replicas performance in 2010.  Carlos won several prizes and the last was  an Honorable Mention in the “International Biennial of Visual Arts of Marinha Grande” in 2010. He is represented in numerous public and private collections.

在澳門「游衍畫廊」的代理下, 葡法混血藝術家 Carlos Farinha 於2014 年首次在澳門開辦個人畫展。

本次在游衍畫廊展出的系列作品,主題為「亞馬交」。「亞馬交」 是當年葡國船隊第一次進駐澳門島時所聽到的名字。本次展覽借用這個古老的澳門葡語名字,彰顯澳門獨特的歷史文化。在展覽中12幅精品均為Carlos 為澳門特別製作, 如馬年、白虎、龍盒、大熊貓、蹦極跳等,都聚焦於澳門獨特的歷史文化背景和當代的特色風情,展示了一個訪澳藝術家眼中的澳門。 Carlos 的作品色彩鮮豔,想像奇特,動漫風十足。其美感與意藴的完美結合,頗具日本動漫大師宮崎駿的風範。他擅長通過情節化的故事,誇張的人物形象,大膽誇張的構圖,表達生活中細緻而深厚的思想情感。其作品畫面充滿了瑰麗的幻想和童真的樂趣,常引路人駐足觀賞。 Carlos Farinha 畢業於里斯本大學(2004),獲藝術學士及雕刻/材質學士雙學位, 1991年開始在里斯本Palacio Das Galveias 展出作品。1998年, 他接受Amadora 漫畫節的邀請,為其製造並展示透視圖。頗具藝術天賦的他,曾多次榮獲國際性大獎,如2010年 「格蘭特國際視覺藝術雙年展」優秀獎。2010年,他與合作伙伴成立了自己的 EPIPIderme機構  。如今,深受藝術界歡迎的他,已同多家公共和私人收藏機構合作。 於去年11月, Carlos 受LusoTalents 項目組邀請訪澳參加葡國精英節。經過一周的澳門文化系列活動,Carlos 迅速掌握了澳門的精要文化和當代風情,於是他決定創作具有澳門特色的作品。 訪澳期間,  他還接受了「葡國駐中國領事館」的邀請,為其創作了一幅紀念中葡友好建交的特色油畫,這幅畫至今仍然展示在領事館大廳中。
