soco_freire_biografia“I look at drawings and all I could see was colors” -Socosoco_freire_art_oneSoco was born in Brazil where she developed a passion for painting as a young child. Her acrylic and mixed media works on canvas create a hypnotic composition of a mixture of abstraction and different representations of objects.  Soco’s desire is that when one looks at her paintings they are able to embark on a journey of colors, feelings and movement. She draws inspiration for her surrounding and everyday life experiences.  Throughout her career she has won numerous awards and today her artwork is featured in many different galleries.  soco_freire_art_culturesoco_freire_art_colors_of_the_soul1
