Mário Sousa's "Fine Pixel Art In RGB" takes you in a journey of discovery, on the relationship between light, shadow, primary colours and the viewer in the creation of secondary colours.

Mário's unique digital creative process incorporates traditional drawing and painting techniques into digital form - including hatching, cross-hatching, light manipulation, color manipulation, and direct pixel manipulation.

Mário creates his fine pixel art in Madrid, Spain.

Regarding his solo fine pixel art exhibition tour, the artist said: "We desperatly need to fill our world with colour. We live our lives in a fast paced society that constantly forgets that we inhabit a tiny blue planet that is crumbling beneath our feet. The beauty of the colour in our world exists because we bring colour to it. We need to light up the colour inside all of us, and make a meaningful change inside all of us."

Mário's intimate fine pixel art exhibition tour is scheduled to premier in Madrid, Spain and will showcase unpublished digital paintings created by the author in various large scale formats, including: A4, A3, A2 formats.

Mário's body of work combines programming, physics, human biology, and photography with his unique digital creative process that incorporates traditional drawing and painting techniques into digital form - including hatching, cross-hatching, light manipulation, color manipulation, and direct pixel manipulation.

The exhibition marks the international solo exhibition debut of Mário's fine pixel artwork, and will exhibit the artist body of work composed, pre-produced, produced, and post-produced over two years of digital artistic experimentation and expression.

About The Tour: "Fine Pixel Art In RGB"

"Fine Pixel Art In RGB" is a premier fine pixel art photography exhibition appreciation tour that exhibits unseen pieces from Mário's debut's body of work: Receptors, and will also introduce his up and coming Rainbow themed series.

The exhibition is an environment of art appreciation and reflection of the artist body of work, that portrays his subject matter.

The exhibition show is the culmination of years of personal dedication, mind-blowing curiosity, intrigue and self-study of the fascinating world of the fundamental properties of light, including two years of artistic exploration, expression, and pre-production.

Inspired by his personal interest in the fundamental properties of light, Mário's artistic visual communication exhibition show aims to expand cultural understanding, and inspire curiosity on the fundamental mysteries about How Nature Really Works.

And, that still continues to defy the physical, metaphysical and beyond.

Mário's debut exhibition show is scheduled to premier in Madrid, Spain in 2019.

The exhibition also marks the beggining of his international exhibition tour scheduled to exhibit in multiple cities around the World.

The international exhibition dates will be officially announced in the next months, and can be consulted on the international exhibition tour schedule.

A crowdfunding campaign will be launched in 2018, to crowdsource the remaining funds to support his premier solo exhibition show in Madrid, Spain.

The crowdfunding campaign was launched on GoFundMe between September and December of 2018 and did not gather the minimum funds required for Mário to continue to support his studio in 2019.
He continues to perfect his art and continues to pursue professional art gallery representation to exhibit his body of work.
