“We are not IN the universe but we ARE the universe and ultimately, each one of us is a focal point where the universe becomes conscious of itself”-- Eckhart Tolle. I paint imaginary stellar landscapes made entirely of drops of paint. My art is inspired by images from outer space caught by Hubble space telescope. It is inspired by the moiré pattern found in photographs in old newspapers. And it is technically based on the behavior of colors in the human brain. I drip the paint onto the canvas, creating many layers of color and allowing them to interact with one another. By observing my paintings, one can achieve a state of relaxation and meditation induced by the light of these colors. Allow your mind to expand.

Born in Americana and raised in Piracicaba, Brasil, Coelho currently lives in San Francisco, California, US, where he creates modern abstract art. Coelho went to school in São Paulo, where he took studies on Architecture and Urban Development. At that time, Coelho also worked as an artist, publicity photographer, educational textbook illustrator, music composer, guitar player, singer, and songwriter (Coelho has recorded three albums of his own compositions). Later, he lived for many years in Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, where he owned an art gallery and worked with a diverse artwork collection.
Among artists from 22 countries, in 1998, Coelho was one of the twenty Brazilian artists to participate in the celebratory exhibition of the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in Paris, France, held at Grande Arche/La Defense, Figuration Critique. The same show opened the Centro Cultural de Sintra (Cultural Center of Sintra) in Portugal, and two publications of the exhibition were later released in Paris and Sintra. Coelho’s exhibition showed IMPRESSOES DO APOCALYPSE (Impressions of the Apocalypse), an artwork collection whose nature is essentially social and depicts the panhandlers and the homeless in the city of São Paulo. In its ?gurative style, Coelho used various techniques and recycled materials as an alternative to canvases.
In 2005, Coelho was selected to be one of the artists to work for ATELIER AMARELO (Yellow Art Studio), a project sponsored by the Secretaria de Estado da Cultura de São Paulo. His work, NA RUA (In the streets), portrays the people living in Cracolandia (the land of the crack) in São Paulo who were for the most part homeless crack addicts.
Also in 2005, Coelho created Vaca Bandida (Bad Cow), which was selected for the CowParade/São Paulo—an international public art event that exhibits life-?sized cows and have been staged in over 50 countries worldwide since 1999.
As an eclectic arBst, Chico Coelho also works with the modern abstract art in its colors and their behaviors, blending e?ects and light. His many years of creation and experimentation with a wide range of techniques have resulted in the development of his own technique, The Dissolution of Fractals. Through this technique, the paint hits the canvas randomly to create a three-?dimensional e?ect onto the canvas. This e?ect is the result of the combinayion and placement of colors and it can be obtained under a constant and relaxed observation.
Coelho’s artistic uneasiness has motivated him to further research and experiment with new themes and techniques so that he continues to create artwork that is pulsating and diversi?ed.
