Carlos Borsa is a visual artist born and established in Sao Paulo, Brazil, who works with painting on various sort of media. He uses several techniques among which stand out: oil on canvas, charcoal on paper, and contemporary fresco.
As a striking feature, his works have a duality between opposites (Light and Darkness, Liquid and Concrete, Classicism and Expressionism) and with this an identity based on existentialist thinking is created.
The existentialism is structured on the idea of duality, brings reference based on various artistic movements, among them expressionism, baroque and renaissance painting.
In the plasticity of the work there is the concept of contraposition that takes place in two moments: through the expressionist brushstroke as opposed to the representational brushstroke; and through the contrast between the support used in the work and the painting performed.
Through this language the artist builds his poetics from the harmony between the extremes.
