University of São Paulo: In Bauru, the USP Cultural Center holds an exhibition of watercolors

The exhibition of watercolors Águas e Cores , by the plastic artist Nelson Yuji Sato, can be seen at the USP Cultural Center, in Bauru, until April 12th. In it, the artist exhibits 35 works, using the watercolor technique, and seeks to convey tranquility, joy and happiness to the observer.

According to Yuji Sato, the theme “water and colors” arose spontaneously, as the artist has always sought to portray lush landscapes in his works, where abundant water and the vibrant colors of nature are always present.

Yuji Sato was born in Irapuru, in the interior of São Paulo, and arrived in Bauru in the early 1960s. In the 1970s, he found a set of gouache paints in his house that would be his initiation into the path of painting. He painted on the most varied supports, from walls to old furniture and doors, which became canvases where the theme was always landscapes with trees and mountains.

In 1987, he moved to Campinas (SP) and attended a complete drawing and painting course at Atelier Escola Paulo Branco, where he developed several techniques, such as oil, graphite, ink, colored pencils, dry pastel, acrylic and watercolor.

He even did some works in oil and colored pencils, but when he saw a work in watercolor by a colleague, he was fascinated, experimented and fell in love with the technique. Since then he works exclusively with watercolors.

In addition to being an artist, Yuji is a business administrator graduated from the Pontifical Catholic University (PUC) of Campinas, postgraduate in Systems Analysis from the same university and in Information Systems from the Associated Colleges of São Paulo (Fasp).
