Medium: Mixed Media and Acrylics
Guida Pereira crashed into her art … literally.
Following a car accident that led to the near loss of her left arm in 2003, Guida recovered, giving a whole new purpose to her right.
Well into her rehabilitation, Guida began putting paintbrush to canvas, experimenting with acrylic, oil, organic textures and metallics. What resulted was the start of a collection demonstrating a fearless delivery of bold colour, fuelled by uninhibited emotion, learned experiences and nostalgia.
Born December 7th, 1963 the self-taught artist takes inspiration from her birthplace, Macau, making her abstract style an eclectic mixture of Chinese and Portuguese influences.
Far from a wreck, Guida’s work reflects her journey through life one canvas at a time – starting from humble beginnings, but anticipating no end to her strokes.
Guida’s work is shown in private collections and can be viewed and purchased by appointment.
