Braziliality presents The New Way by Bernard Rangel

It is more common for Brazilians to leave Brazil and go abroad to seek a better way of life. Bernard Rangel, artist and adventurer, did the opposite.

He spent 24 years living in Brazil and found a better way of life there. Born in Aden, South Yemen, and educated in Ireland he set off to sea and worked in off-shore oil exploration. From there he lived in West Berlin and then Hong Kong and later in Switzerland to become a hotel manager. In 1985 he arrived in Brazil.

As a self taught professional artist from the age of 15 Bernard has experimented with the different mediums developing a creative and original style that he has named Contemporary Tribal Surrealism. His work is introspective, shamanic, spiritually driven and has derived from years of painting. To him each medium has its own technical realities lending an imagery which is challenging, creative, cellular and exotic. The fusion of colour is intoxicating, psychedelic and seductive allowing you to venture into the perspective depths of your own imagination.

Bernard has exhibited in Ireland, England, Brazil, Italy, Germany, India and the USA. Now based in London’s East End, on Fish Island his purpose is to establish his name and become part of the global art mainstream.
