João Gabriel is a young artist with a prolific painting practice centred on capturing erotic male figures in a world between figuration and abstraction. Often depicting moments of intimacy or tender encounters, his paintings deal with desire, loss and nostalgia. Gabriel’s recent work departs from vintage gay porn movies of the 1970s. While suggestive, his paintings go beyond the act of representation itself and contribute to queer and homoerotic narratives in contemporary art today in connection to queer history.
