The Minimalist, Retro Abstract Style of South Florida-based Artist Amauri Torezan

Brazilian-born artist Amauri Torezan creates impressive geometric and organic compositions evoking a sense of depth, as though the flatly painted shapes were eternally suspended in space.

His influences range from the work of the pioneers of abstract art to the Brazilian modernists, not only in the visual arts, but also architects such as Oscar Niemeyer and the landscape designer/painter Roberto Burle Marx.

Torezan’s career has elevated to new heights, his work is being exhibited in art museums, prestigious shows and art fairs worldwide. During Art Basel Week Miami in 2014 at the Conception Art Fair, Torezan was invited by the master sculptor Gino Miles and art curator Rachel Wilkins Blum to be part of the Global Code Project. In 2016 Torezan's works were selected for show at The Baker Museum in Naples, and the Coral Springs Museum of Art.

The artist exhibited at the Old Town Hall in Chelsea, London during the UK’s Parallax Art Fair in July of 2015. In November that same year he was invited to participate in the Canvas WPB local showdown, as the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency had commissioned Torezan along with six other artists to paint individual murals in the arts district of the Northwood neighborhood.
