Ben Brown Fine Arts is proud to present an exhibition of new works by Caio Fonseca, an exciting exemplar of contemporary abstract painting. This exhibition will feature a new body of work painted over the course of the past two years demonstrating how he has pushed his pictorial idiom to new and unexplored regions. A mastery of spatial potential and ambiguity is unveiled in these large and small works.

This is the second exhibition of Caio Fonseca's work to be held in the UK, and Ben Brown is thrilled to be able to expose such a pertinent, well-known artist of the New York art scene to London.

Fonseca developed his unique approach to painting through an unorthodox style, one that impresses the importance of the relationship between mentor and student. He studied intensively for five years in a constant state of creativity under Uruguayan painter Augusto Torres in Barcelona, Spain. This educational isolation enabled Fonseca to cultivate his unique, individual approach to painting.
