ivan serpa


didn't know much about ivan serpa until i saw him in an old varig airlines comerical. he was a brazilian painter from rio and was a big part of the brazilian post-war avant-garde, both as an artist and teacher at the museum of modern art in rio. esteemed in brazil, he isn't all that well know outside it, perhaps due to his early death in 1973. they might not have such a impact these days but i love the paintings above...
