Johnny Domus Mesquita gets his inspiration from everything around him, based on what he idealizes his mind. His work
is the result of an explosion of sensations, impressions, in a mixture of pleasure and accomplishment, a communication mode, a means of expression,
as well as a stream of personal ideologies, in all the work he does.
Each work is seen as a challenge that motivates and encourages the continuation and improvement of his daily work.
His realism is undoubtably top notch, but what’s specifically remarkable is his acute ability to, compositionally, capture a human moment.
There’s a tremendous amount of feeling that’s conveyed in the eyes and expressions of many of his works.
This daily obsession is proving that he has the innate capability to capture the soul on skin.
