My work is characterized by contrasts - the juxtaposition of opposites on several levels - which is recognized throughout my paintings.

Clouds on the Street: Public Installation by Eduardo Coimbra

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 06, 2013
We have to applaud this Cloud installation by Rio de Janeiro-based artist Eduardo Coimbra. Not only does the piece looks magical at night, it transcends into daytime just as effectively. Using iron, translucent canvas printing, fluorescent lamps, and mirrors, while creating 5 light boxes measuring 17 sq ft, Coimbra's Cloud installaton creates a surreal experience in a public space.
