Praia Vermelha 2018

Acrylic on canvas, 145 x 85 cm. The Sugar Loaf mountain, the most iconic image of Rio, bathed with a sunset light gave me the opportunity to explore some concepts of Mark Rothko´s color fields, delivering a very vibrant and exquisite painting.

Mona Luiza 2019

Acrylic on canvas, 65 x 55 cm. Luiza playing at the pool with her joyful sideway smile reminded me Mona Lisa´s portrait, so the inspiration came quickly from the name: Mona Luiza. With a pinch of comic books seasoning…

Coexist 2020

Acrylic on canvas, 30 x 40 cm. A pool party in a summer night of December 2019 at school of visual arts EAV Parque Lage in Rio gathered together a great number of happy people of all tribes, genres, creeds and visions, coexisting peacefully and enjoying life. A couple of months later we all would be confined because of the pandemics feeling nostalgic about it!

Sergil Sias


Sergil Sias was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, surrounded by the silhouettes of the mountains, the “color fields” in the skies and the movement of the people and the waves at Rio’s numerous beaches. The spontaneous, colorful and easy-going Rio lifestyle is the motto of his vibrant, luminous and animated whimsical paintings, sometimes including characters, scenes and comments of daily life, with a pinch of comic books seasoning.

In in 2017 Sergil joined Parque Lage’s School of Visual Arts (EAV) in Rio, the cradle of the Brazilian modern painting, when he decided to fully dedicate his time to painting. He participated in the collective exhibitions Escola em transe at EAV (2017), 27° Salão do Clube Naval (2018), 5th Salão de Artes Buzios, Galeria MBlois Ipanema (2020), all in Rio de Janeiro and presented his art on a 30 minutes web live at “EEI Encontro de Espaços Independentes at Art Rio Fair 2020”.
