This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jose Da Silveira (b.1965)

He was born in 1965 in a tiny jungle village in Mozambique,to a Portuguese rejoneador (bullfighter), and the daughter of one of the leaders of the French Resistance in Provence.

As his father was in Africa fighting in the Mozambican Liberation War, Da Silveira spent the first years of his life shuttling between Africa and France, then Portugal and France, ultimately settling with his mother in Marseille.

Da Silveira's gift for art, discovered at an early age, gave him the opportunity to study with some of Provence's greatest masters, including Maurois and Ambrogiani.  He began showing his work professionally at age 16.

Da Silveira's style combines contemporary technique and form with explosive color and powerful imagery.  His work is both forceful and unique, with a mastery of color and pigment technique that earned him a dedicated following.  As his style matured and evolved, art critics and connoisseurs coined it Formism, and a new school of art was born.  20 years later Formist painting continues to inspire a new generation of artists.

Seeking new challenges, he relocated to California in 1997.  

Da Silveira's passion for the female form, whether maternal or sensual, is also an important inspiration for his painting.  He is also know as a novelist, playwright and movie producer.
