Daniel Gonçalves is a self-taught draughtsman and painter from Porto (b.1977) with a deep genuine creative streak. This gift, combined with a hyperactive personality, led him from an early age to understand the world and to relate to it through his artistic expression.
After several experimental stages he eventually settled on an obsessive black-and-white, materialized in geometric abstract drawings, though spotted by organic elements: a repetitive minimal aesthetic, more circular than linear.
The exhibition “2:22” was composed by a panel of two lines of eleven drawings, plus an isolated column with two more works. All of the drawings are made with artpen on paper, with the dimensions 50x70cm, framed in black aluminum.
The soundtrack of the exhibition was Steve Reich’s “Music for 18 Musicians”.
