Fábio Magalhães works with self-reference painting. Metaphorically connecting images of his own body, feelings and banal situations, he aims at pointing out conditions inconceivable to be portrayed but through artifices and distortions of reality. As for this, his art pieces are the result of a modus operandi that makes part of the photographic universe and results in a kind of parallel reality, materialized in the universe of painting. In which, he creates contours of a disturbing reality.

sooooo earlier today i was freaking out because i think i am a fat piece of shit and i have no money and no permanent job. so i joined a gym at home and applied for about 20 jobs online. had another small nervous breakdown over how samey and annoying job applications are…and how i am too rubbish for any job anyway. then i actually went to the gym and ended up getting a call from an agency that i had an interview with the other week, offering me a job at the natural history museum. felt accomplished for about 5 minutes. now i am freaking out as i start tomorrow and it is fucking terrifying. pretty much can never win. what is life?!
