The hyper realistic artist Fabiano Millani was born in 1981, a remarkable figure of Brazilian Contemporary Realism and Kitsch. At the age of 18, he started teaching courses of art. Having problems with the administrational parts of teaching led him off this path – leaving him on a passionate path of creation.
The favorite work of Fabiano Millani is the work he hasn’t painted yet. In a never-ending battle, he seeks to out concur himself and to paint something even greater than he ever did before. Once a piece is finished, it is no longer of interest to him.
The work of Millani is both pre-thought and simultaneously emerge on their own. Millani chooses the theme, without getting stuck to a specific mood. Whenever he paints, he’s going with the flow, reaching the point he decided to concur.
The key element of creating a good composition to Millani, is the composition of the view of the spectator. The wisdom of being able to see the best of each situation possible. Millani is drawn to artists such as Brazilian artist Lígia Fiedler, which takes part of his everyday life. Millani is inspired by her dedication – a dedication which is lost to those who spend too long time ‘being artists’, according to Millani. According to Millani what matters is the love and dedication to comply and do what one does best. If we could all face our everyday life like a child entering an amusement park, all of us would be successful and happy.
To Millani, the old saying of walking against the stream, makes sense. The tide always changes direction, and, in some point, one will catch the wave. Dedication, effort, and passion for what one does is essential. Practice is the main thing, to achieve a goal.
