Emanuel De Sousa

Emanuel de Sousa, born on Madeira Island, Portugal, is a contemporary artist based in the United Kingdom. With bold brush strokes he portray the human figure in different surroundings, always looking for new compositions to challenge himself. The pantings are constructed with a rough charcoal base and completed with a harmonious acrylic color palette. Both the process and end result are intense in resolve and attitude, transporting the observer into the center of the narrative.

De Sousa is now recognized on the International art scene with praised solo exhibitions in Europe and the United States.
