Jota's works with pencil on paper, acrylic on board, and acrylic on canvas to achieve his remarkable images.
He paints the inner soul of his subjects, and manifests this as their outer persona. The paintings are magically captivating. Leal is in a sense, an interpreter of the subconscious, translating with his pencils and brushes.
Photos from Jota Leal appearance at Gallery of Music & Art on Friday and Sunday, August 14th.
