Hi, I´m Paulo Sérgio Zerbato
Born in Vitória Brasil in the region of Jales, State of São Paulo, Brazil. I started my first artwork in its infancy.
Observation: self-taught, I learned to draw on the floor of the yard, with my finger (I had no paper, no pencils or other materials available).
Great-grandson of Italian and raised in a religious family, around 12 years channeled my creativity to express religious themes such as: images / drawings to celebrations Corpus Christi (large paintings on the street of the City), also restoration of sacred images.
In the 90's, I graduated the Course Degree in Art Education, where I met Professor / Artist / Poet / Musician Rui Barbosa, who encouraged me to make paintings on canvas. By knowing the works of Salvador Dali, my work began to suffer heavily influenced by Surrealism. This period was also experimental with combination of materials and paints still with a deep religious influence, as well as studies of anatomy, body movement, symbolism, psychological issues, reflexions and self-questioning.
In 1998, I moved to Sao Bernardo do Campo. I joined as an Art Teacher in State Schools in São Paulo. In the Schools, I performed, with my students, projects to revitalize the school environment through large murals. We painted the wall of the School, the chronological sequence of Art History.
In parallel, my personal artistic experimentation evolved into 'art objects', diversifying and experimenting new media materials: wood, papier mache, everyday objects, collage, and pigments obtained from land and also automotive paints.
In 2007, I created an blog to promote my artworks earlier.
After a break in artistic creations, in 2009, more mature, married and father, I went back create artworks more critical and questioning of the socio-political situation in Brazil.
Other themes very inspiring to me are: psychology, planetary consciousness and self-knowledge, which reflect the complexity of the human psyche, behavior and human relationships and a deep understanding of what we really are.
