Lives and works in São Paulo
Working mainly with images of landscapes and cosmos, Felipe uses painting to discuss the production and perception of images in contemporary times, and address issues related to nature, environment, and our existence on planet Earth.
The images are not based on photographs, or even on real places. For the artist, it is important that the final image emerges from the creative process, mixing memory and fantasy.
He has held solo exhibitions at Galeria Kogan Amaro (São Paulo, 2019 and 2022; and Zurich, 2022), Galeria Murilo Castro (Belo Horizonte, 2018), Instituto Moreira Salles (Poços de Caldas, 2017), Galeria Virgílio (São Paulo, 2016 and 2018), Central Galeria de Arte (São Paulo, 2014), Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art (Arizona, USA, 2014), Museu de Arte de Goiânia (Goiânia, 2012) and Usina do Gasômetro (Porto Alegre, 2012).
