About The Artist
Artist Statement Music, dance and colors, are what I consider to be the true essence of Carnaval. Inspired by the sounds of Brazilian samba, I naturally relied on my experience as a musician to create a composition that possessed a mood and movement. The form of the brushstrokes and intensity of colors, unconsciously captures the sensations of the music heard during the creation of the artwork. The intention is to invite each viewer to join the celebration and dance the samba of Carnaval!
Bio Carl “Eugi” Hall can hear colors. The native Washingtonian painter/illustrator is on a mission to interpret the colors of music. Influenced by Wassily Kandinsky, Walt Disney and Prince, he has experimented with various styles and mediums, from his youth to adulthood. He was that kid always drawing and painting his creative thoughts on whatever surface available. Whether it was on paper, canvas, clothes or the side of a building, seeing his visions in real life felt magical. A self-taught artist, he has exhibited his work throughout the Washington, D.C./Baltimore area in several solo and group exhibitions. One may describe his work as figurative abstract or maybe even abstract realism, but to him it’s all a “colorful jam session”.
