Chico Coelho is a local Bay Area artist and musician who paints in a tantric-like expression. This painting seemingly implies a meditative visual response as one focuses deeply at the piece. The effect of the painting resonates and shifts around resulting to a sensation of a quasi-calm and ineffable euphoric state. This body of work pulses with creative energy.

Chico’s paintings deal with an amalgamation of styles of pointillism and color field technique. He has been exploring with this experimentation and he calls it Dissolution of Fractals.
