Milo Tchais

Milo Tchais was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1981.

A self-taught artist who started experimenting with graffiti, lettering, figures and compositions in 1997, while living in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He relocated to London in 2001 and has since developed 2D and 3D works for commissions and exhibitions, workshops, illustrations and designs. His work emphasises shapes and colour contrasts, building layer upon layer of textures, through an abstract figurative approach. It relates nature, human behaviour, the mind and its movements and our ways of manifesting in a simplistic way, celebrating the unity of everything and pacifying the viewer with flowing lively compositions.

Mainly working with acrylics and spray paint, nevertheless his pieces can also incorporate metal leaf, inks and collages in very diverse settings, not only canvas, linen, wood and walls, but also metal, porcelain, glass and three dimensional objects.

His work has been exhibited extensively in the UK and Brazil, the latest major project being Elephant Parade London 2010, a charitable public art exhibition where his original piece was purchased at his highest sale price to date. He has also featured in previous auctions at Dreweatts.
“Brazilian Londoner Milo Tchais’s rhapsodies of swirling form and joyous colour have been setting the streets of London and the wider firmament alight for many years now. Synthesising radiant elements from the natural world with the gently distorting mirror of imagination, his other worldly human forms nestle into an orgy of spiralling abstraction and a landscape of explosive inner space. Silky movement glides trough the figurative prism and lifts layer after layer of texture into a joyous sea of celebration, reflection, exploration and transcendental wanderings trough the third eye.”
