'JUST DO ME' | Esgar Acelerado
Cycle: "The Politics of Images" curated by João Baeta


The wonderfully bizarre works of Esgar Acelerado would go “POP! WHIZZ! BANG!” if they could make sound. He graduated in Painting at the School of Fine Arts of Porto, and his characters bring a look of gluttony for things, gluttony for life with their frequently bulging appearance, with a hard and intense expression, also with a dramatic, even melancholic and hence romantic tone. His powerful use of colours, mad typography and edgy shapes are a commanding spank to the eyes, mixing the universe of comics with illustration. Old movie posters are a reference to him, he loves to watch black and white movies and to listen to rock'n'roll records.
