“COLOUR SHAPE LOVE – Works by Joaquim Franco”
Joaquim’s paintings are rich-coloured, as he has a full understanding to the use of colours through the theoretical study of them. Those abstract paintings look simple, while the use of colours is the key. His skilled abstract painting style is attractive and not old-fashioned. Not only using colours, but drawing shapes is also Joaquim’s another well-developed skill. Joaquim believes that only love and peace from the inner heart could create art. This is the reason why the exhibition is named “COLOUR SHAPE LOVE”.
