Patel Rebelo is a portuguese artist from an indian family, who paints and feels each particle of ink like a deep cry from the soul. As his body wanders the streets of Lisbon, his spirit makes mental puzzles with what his eyes see, drawing inspiration from the world of images, feelings and emotions that alleys and avenues, looks and conversations, so generously present to him. His inspiration comes from the street, the suburbs, the exhausted lives, the frightened souls, the silent speeches. For him, painting is the exorcism of the black that the soul experiences.
