Caio Fonseca

American painter Caio Fonseca explores the details and values of the visual phenomena around him, creating signature abstract paintings that represent the relationships between tonality, contrast, spatial relations and proportions. Fonseca studied at Brown University and then moved to Spain to complete his training under the tutelage of Agusto Torres, son of famous modernist artist Joaquín Torres-García. Today he spends his time between Pietrasanta in Italy and New York City. Fonseca has had a prolific career as a painter and printmaker, with an extensive exhibition roster in American and European galleries and museums. He has also been commissioned to create several public murals, including in buildings by star architects Renzo Piano in Sydney, Australia, and Cesar Pelli in Washington D.C. Fonseca’s work is in several public collections, notably the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney Museum of Art, all in New York City; the Smithsonian Institution and the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among others. Goldman Sachs, The Microsoft Collection and several United States Embassies abroad also carry his work in their collections.
