Becken Filipe

(…) Becken Filipe (1983) is an example of an artist that assumes his personality in maturity, and that chases with resilience the painting as a view over the world – a sensitive world (his) and the daily world (also ours). Becken Filipe rooted his passions in the duality of his academic training: between communication design (IADE) and sculpture (FBAUL - Fine Arts Lisbon). From the merger, painting would emerge (...)Edward Hopper (1882-1967) wrote “Painting is a recording of emotion”. He also said that “if it was possible to put it in words, there would be no reason to paint at all”. Becken Filipe is in that range. He took my attention for his ability to capture souls within the bodily rhythms he paints. (…)”Helena Mendes Pereira – Chief Curator at ZetGallery, Bragain RUA Magazine
