For his first solo show in Berlin, the brazilian painter Daniel Lannes (1981) presents eight canvases in which he explores a universe of alegories and clichés immersed in the atmosphere of colorfull-warm locations. The represented scenes exude lust, irony, a bit of violence, cynical exoticism and power relations, while subtly evokes the cultural and historical background of Rio de Janeiro City, where the artist grow up. Completing 10 years of artistic practice, Lannes hasbeen pointed out by critics as one of the highlights of his generation in Brazil. His paintings are inspired by diverse historical references as well as banal images found in old books, magazines and the media in general. From them the artist open up a deep discussion on Western painting legacy and its heritage in Brazil – especially the history of Brazilian academic art seeded by the Imperial Fine Arts Academy (Academia Imperial de Belas Artes) founded in 1816 in Rio, capital of the former Colony, by french masters established there under the orders of King Dom João VI of Portugal.
