A local artist is presenting his first solo art exhibition at the SB Contemporary Art gallery in Windsor.

Victor Romão has been an artist with SB Art since 2011. This is his first exhibition in Windsor with 15 pieces of art in the show. Visitors to show will see Romão’s new works and his unique style of paintings.

Sarah Beveridge, owner and curator of SB Art said she is excited about exhibiting Romão’s new works to the public.

“The drawing technique, the draftsmanship of Romão work has become a signature style depicting a subject matter that is often unusual, uncomfortable and at times scary,” said Beveridge.

This time Romão is painting wooden logs, their forms, shape, colour and texture on paper. He uses acrylic ink and gouache to express his artistic thought and findings about the logs.

In a statement Romão said, “I hope to provide viewers with an encounter that simulates my attraction / repulsion to various aspects of North American rural life.”

His previous artwork was based on fear, otherness and male violence. Growing up in Harrow has inspired many of his works.

Romão has an M.F.A from the University of Windsor. He has participated in group and solo art exhibitions across Canada, the U.S., Japan and New Zealand. Currently, he is a faculty and visual arts instructor at the University of Windsor.

Most of the artwork from the exhibition is for sale and costs between $800 to $1800. The exhibition opened Oct. 4 and runs untill Nov. 11. SB Art has also arranged an artist talk on Oct. 28, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

SB Contemporary Art is located at 1017 Church St. in Windsor. The gallery is open Wednesday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
