ANDERSON LEMES - GERMAN

Anderson, better known as Alemão, is from Assis/SP and had the support of two teachers at school who transformed his life, preventing him from being expelled from school and encouraging him as an artist.
There were teachers who knew how to perceive and understand that people are talents and not numbers, who knew how to see the artist through the layers of dyslexia.
In his artistic production, a reflection of the feeling of that time: in his characters something is always missing, that's how he felt, as if he was missing a piece.

THE AVIATOR

The aviator, by Anderson Ferreira Lemes, the Alemão, offers in his poetic visuals the opportunity to reflect on human existence. His work, which began with graffiti art in walls of the Assis’ streets, SP, Brazil, won the world over. The universality of the lirism of his images refers to the desire of freedom that makes us humans. His images bring this possibility within an aesthetic in which the color plays a primordial role and where the background refers to urban walls, never clean. Because of his dyslexia, he’s always had trouble in the traditional school model, and he tried to get attention from his teachers through bad behavior. It was through art that he found an universe in which he wasn’t invisible. He created situations full of color, that transform everything into something attractive, within a conception that transmits that there’s always hope for life to be greater.

SWEET CHILDHOOD

The fundamental thought behind Alemão's art, is very much connected to a concept that is very grateful for him: conserving, even though with the passage of years, the purity of a child's eyes. This means maintaining purity and ingenuity, observing everything as if it was the first time. This gives him an enormous creativity freedom, because it allows escaping from ready-made formulas and provides each look new connotations, full of colors, shapes and emotions that remind of an intriguing movement and the joy of existence. This way, there emerge creations marked by a constant renewal, a perennial spring that leads to an eternal renaissance of ideas.

ANDERSON LEMES
by himself

I was encouraged by a teacher, this was fundamental in my life!

I always had problems with the teachers, because I didn't understand anything that was taught, due to dyslexia. I was about to be expelled by the teachers' council because I loved to set off bombs at school to get attention.
“The teachers said: in my class he doesn't do anything. ”
But Professor Lilão defended me by saying: “In my class he is the best student, I ask that you give him an opportunity, because I will take care of him.
I kept Lilão's advice: you need to do something that explodes with art, not exploding bombs, you're an artist.
There was another teacher, Maroubo, who marked my beginning in the arts, motivated me to draw and paint.
This is a great inspiration for the world of education, the teachers who understood that people are talents, not numbers, it's just a matter of worldview.
