"Garo takes us to the Portuguese capital. Far from the city of white walls and red rooftop clichés, the artist favours ambiances imbued with nostalgia, where we almost seem to perceive the languorous intonations of fado, steep little streets, monumental arches of a bygone era and, then again the complex structures of more modern architecture. Curves are everywhere in his paintings, with brown, grey, blue and rust harmonies, a curve that underlines an arch, then a spiral staircase, and then the silhouette of a promontory. Just as he did in the other two series for this Project, Garo immersed himself in the place to capture the essence of the city through a series of photographs from which he constructed his compositions. His signature – dense materials rich in sand, bitumen and other natural earthy substances – consolidates an already highly structured drawing, reflecting architectures of stone and metal."   Nicole Kunz

The Voice of an empty Space - LISBON

Ma nostalgie à retardement
Vacille_dans_la_féline_et_mauresque_nuit
Vertige
Du_bleu_profond_se_détachait_par_contraste,_l’éclair_blanc_(triptyque)
Réveil face à un rythme contemporain
Archipel de solitude
La voix d’un espace vide
Le silence qui naît du bruit
À-pics_dans_la_tourmente_des_éléments
L’orage le soir s’est abattu
Face au mur atlantique
Vide dentelé et ciselé
La descente dans les sous urbains
L’intranquillité
