Levi Guerra – Between Medicine, Writing and Painting

Authors: Levi Guerra/ Paulo Abreu

“To discover talents, advertise our artists, the ones that fill our town with imagination, beauty and art, or our monuments, or our churches, even our houses – this is the aim of this book and of others that we hope to publish in the future.”
The following pages will not only present the paintings, but also the artist’s life, the way he speaks of himself and some of his writings. We will look at what others have said about him and his work. And above all, we will show his paintings, full of strength, life, vibrancy, determination, eye-catching colours, striking actions, fiery scenes, as passion is fiery, and love is fiery, our love, and God’s love for us.”
