MÔA • A painter.
         Môa, Moacir Moreira, today lives in Porto Alegre/RS, but was born in 1950 in Joinville/SC. He has dedicated himself to doing art since the 70's. Soon in the beginning of his production he moved to São Paulo where he began to interact with the ateliers at the Armando Álvares Penteado Foundation (FAAP). While in this city, Môa got to know artists, participated in courses, and had the opportunity to discuss and experience art with dynamism and intensity. He worked with drawing, painting, bannering, and installation, and even participated in the National Art Show of São Paulo in 1976.
         Upon returning to Santa Catarina, Môa became a part of the local art community, participating in important moments in the history of art in that State. During the 80's, he lived for a period of time in Porto Alegre/RS and interacted with the Free Atelier at the Cultural Center where he participated in workshops given by various artists while studying Drawing and Art History.
         When he returned to Joinville, Môa gave painting classes and implanted an Art Education project approved by MEC named PRODIARTE. He set up his own atelier in this city and began to interact directly with local artists up until the 90's when, for personal reasons, he moved permanently to Porto Alegre/RS. However, the distance did not keep him from keeping contact with his hometown, which he continues until today, whether by Expos, the organization of cultural events, or just to stimulate the artistic movement in Joinville.
         In 1976, after the Bienal, the birds came from nature and began to be the main motif of his production and this has continued until today. Whether it be on canvas, emulsified paper, or tunin, supports that vary according to the research and inventiveness of the artist, his passion for painting, whose motif are the birds is evident and resulted in three moments: Tudo Passará (begun in 1996), Frestas do Tempo (in 1999), and Véus do Tempo (begun in 2001).
         Môa has made individual art shows in Jaraguá do Sul, Joinville, Curitiba, São Paulo, Florianópolis, and Porto Alegre. He has participated in various national events, such as Bienal Nacional de São Paulo, and has been a part of collective shows in Curitiba, São Paulo, São Francisco do Sul, Salvador, Blumenau, Pelotas, and Brasilia. He has participated in all of the editions of the Collective Artists of Joinville from 1977 to 2002, including their editions in Blumenau, Pelotas, Porto Alegre, Florianópolis, São Bernardo do Campo, and Langenhagen (Germany).
