Adriano Machado

Série The Guard, 2019

Adriano Machado Lives and works in between Feira de Santana and Alagoinhas, Bahia. He received her Master’s Degree in Visual Arts from Universidade Federal da Bahia – UFBA and develops artistic projects in photography, video and objects that discuss issues about identity, territory, fiction and memory, investigating life policy processes. His works point to the human condition between living spaces and Afro-inventive territories.

He has displayed his work at several exhibitions such Bienal de Cerveira (Portugal, 2020); Valongo Festival Internacional da Imagem (Santos/SP, 2019); Concerto para pássaros (Goethe Institut, Salvador, 2019); Panapaná “Vamos de mãos dadas (João Pessoa, 2018). And won the main prize at the Salons of Visual Arts of Bahia in 2013 and special mentions in 2011 and 2014, and also Prêmio Funarte de Residências artísticas in 2019. He join artistic residencies at Pivô Arte e Pesquisa Ciclo III / Beck’s (São Paulo, 2020); Fluxos: Acervos do Atlântico Sul (Salvador, 2019) and VerdeVEZ, in the contemporary art field (Teresina, 2019).

Bruno Miguel

Scares, 2021
Veja todos

Bruno develops since 2004 his research around the construction and representation of landscape in contemporary times, working in several languages, he chooses painting as the main theme of his obsessive production routine. In recent years, questions about landscape have begun to give way to a greater investigation of painting as a language and its interfaces in contemporary everyday life. But above any rhetoric Bruno may develop to justify his choices, the real strength of his research lies in the work. Not in the work itself, but in the toil of the studio, where his curiosity and restlessness keep his painting in transformation. Where his compulsions seek anxious mistakes for unpredictable solutions, so generous that they hide behind the banal dazzle of easy images. His research is a kind of peripheral post-pop, always relating high and low culture. A vulgar and exuberant makeup that superficially disguises his condition of eternal search for beauty. Not of painting, but of painting.

Bruno Passos

The White Night, 2020

Bruno Passos stylist by training (UEL), Bruno had his work recognized as one of the participants of the visual identity of SPFW (2009), later exhibited at the Venice Biennale, was also selected for the Brazilian Design Biennale (2013) and, as a stylist, made appearances in Folha de São Paulo, Vogue and Valor Econômico.

Bruno had his first contact with painting late, at the age of 27, after an epiphany, that was when he retired from Fashion and began to dedicate himself entirely to painting where, early on, he collected awards and selections in the most traditional salons of national classical painting: SBA of Piracicaba, SAV of Vinhedo, SBA of Limeira, among others.

Following this, he was the first Brazilian accepted to be the apprentice of Swedish painter Odd Nerdrum (MET-NY, National Gallery-Oslo, Gothenburg Museum), his artistic residence (Norway 2016) was successful and, in 2017, he received another invitation to return and be the assistant of
Nerdrum in his largest physical work, “Opening of the Prisons”.
The Scandinavian experience opened new directions for him, of which we highlight the invitation for a Solo Exhibition at the Secretariat of Culture of São Paulo (2018) and the current one-year artistic residence at the FAMA museum in Itu.

Bruno conducts seasonal expeditions to the corners of Brazil, from where he extracts input for his paintings of latent and non-obvious Brasilidades. His focus is to subvert the academic technique so that it becomes a source of sensory stimulus to the viewer, stimulating emotions by examining what it is to be Brazilian and what are the characteristics that constitute this dentification. His works are part of collections in France, USA, China, and Brazil, and last year he was considered by the Norwegian magazine Sivilisasjonen one of the three greatest classical painters today.

Daniel Mullen

Temporal Form, (Future Monuments 006), 2020

Abstract painter Daniel Mullen was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1985. Graduated in 2011 from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, where he currently resides. Mullen has had his works exhibited in London, Vancouver, New York, and more recently, held his first exhibition at the Direktorenhaus Museum in Berlin. Mullen’s artistic career started as a natural passion he exerts for architecture and spaces; what fascinates him is to create spaces, unoccupying them thereafter. He creates perspectives, toying with optical illusions, which come to place by combining pigmentation and geometry.

Fernanda Figueiredo

Bulcão/Bill 1, 2017
Veja todos

Fernanda Figueiredo studied Architecture and Urbanism at Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie and Visual Arts at Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo. From 2005 on she worked actively in a collaborative duo in São Paulo, drawing and painting being the media that best reflect her artistic production. In 2015, when she moved to Berlin, she started to pursue her solo career. She began then to investigate the process of building Brazilian nationality in the 20th century and the role of visual arts, architecture, landscaping and design in these events. She has exhibited at institutions such as MAM – Rio de Janeiro, MAM – Bahia, Galerie im Körnerpark and Kunstquartier Bethanien in Berlin; she has also received several awards, including Programa Rede Nacional Funarte de Artes Visuais, Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt Stipendium from the Berliner Senat and Europäischen Sozialfonds, and from Jakob und Emma Windler-Stiftung for an artist residency in Switzerland in 2021. Her work is represented in private collections and in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro.

Gabriel Botta

Montanha, 2020
Veja todos

Gabriel Botta has as the focus of his work the investigation of image through painting. Sometimes from the translation of image into gesture, sometimes in painting as a landscape of the narrator himself, who acts as both subject and object of his pictorial studies. The works are based on the experimentation with different materials and supports, which, with their distinct characteristics, provide different times and gestures. Manifestations of the artist’s transitoriness and of the time in which we live. In these processes, the narrative thread is built.

He studied Product Design and Fine Arts and at Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado – FAAP (2006-2012), Philosophy, Pedagogy and aesthetics at Conglomerate Atelier do Centro – C.A.C (2012-2019) and also studied Painting and video art at Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Laje – EAV (2011). Among the exhibitions, she participated in the 5th Edition of the EDP in Arts Award, of the Tomie Ohtake Institute (2016), and won the Acquisition Award at the 42nd Ribeirão Preto Art Salon – SARP, at the Ribeirão Preto Museum of Art, the same institution where, the following year, she held her first solo exhibition, entitled “9”.

Jens Hausmann

Kleine Utopie (Small utopia), 2016

Jeans Hausmann has works of retrospective character, focusing on the classic European modernism, especially related to modern architecture: Bauhaus, International Style and Brutalism. He studied sculpture at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts (Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden) and took classes with Professor Ralf Kerbach at the same school. Between 1987 and 1990 he worked as an assistant in the studio of a Berlin sculptor, and soon after, with graphic design and illustration. The artist is a free curator and performs at least two collective exhibitions a year, covering various supports: painting, sculpture and photography.

Luisa Almeida

Tocaia, 2018

Luisa Almeida works with large wood printmaking, researching alternative printing techniques. The high contrast in woodprints dialogues with her thematic, for it explores fire guns being held by women and little girls in daily life, investigating the society’s symbolic relations towards this object. Professionally engaged on scenography for opera and theater, Luisa incorporates scenic resources to her artwork, producing xylographic installations using stage elements. Researching alternative printing techniques, she uses vehicles, fork-lifts and steamrollers as part of the creative process. Currently attending Master’s program in Visual Arts, UNESP. Undergraduate in Visual Arts, UNESP (2017).

Mirela Cabral

Mirela Cabral is an artist born in Salvador, Bahia, in 1992. She lives and works in São Paulo (SP), where she graduated in Media Studies with a major in Filmmaking at Fundação Álvares Penteado/FAAP. She researches both abstract and figurative expressions, focusing on ordinary depictions as well as images from her own memory and from observational sketches drawn on her diaries. Mirela interacts, bends and defies strokes, shapes and textures that range from painting to drawing and to embroidery as her media of choice.

Mundano

Preservação ou Morte, 2020
Veja todos

Mundano is a artivist born in the city of São Paulo and recognized internationally for his graffiti “papo reto” which means “straight to the point”, whether in public space or in more than 320 carts of collectors of recyclable materials. The graffiti artist and activist seeks to question concepts and behaviors of citizens and authorities through interventions that carry mostly impact phrases inspired by the local context. The preservation of the environment and universal human rights are the basis of his activism that transcends the inks.

Mundano is part of the NGO Ashoka, TED Fellow, founder of the NGO Pimp My Carroça and awarded in the area of public art, human rights, creativity and digital innovation. The tireless artist has already defined his life mission: to create an environmental and social legacy with his art. In order to fulfill this challenge, in the last 10 years he has given interventions, exhibitions and lectures by more than 40 cities in Brazil and in the world.

Nunca

SEM TÍTULO, 2019
Veja todos

Francisco Rodrigues, better known as Nunca (Never), is among the most famous masters of Brazilian street art: his work, which can be found in cities all over the world, earned a reputation when the Tate Modern put on a major exhibition of global street art in 2008, covering the museum´s exterior walls with works around 15 metres high.

He started making graffiti and pichação (a uniquely Brazilian form of tagging) on the streets of São Paulo when he was 12 years old. Over the decades, his work developed into a more pictorial form. Though made with acrylic or spray paint, it often has the look of woodcuts or etchings, using colours and styles to evoke the anciet traditions of the Brazilian people and the clash between tribal roots and globalized society.

Rafaella Braga

Born in Goiânia, Brazil, 1998. Rafaella Braga began tracing her own path in arts through graffiti and later finding herself in painting, exploring it freely and without any pre-conception. She has been developing and materializing her ideas mostly on large scale canvases, that can take up entire walls, revealing a physically intense working method.

Using the canvas as a diary, her practice has the body as primer matter, investigating the self outlined by her vulnerabilities and secrets, and revolves around the interplay between reality and fantasy, identity and time, offering a dreamlike alternative to reality.

The artist have been developing her own projects, collaborating with international initiatives as so group exhibitions. Rafaella Braga is currently based in Berlin.

Rafael Kamada

Sem título, 2020
Veja todos

Graduated in Graphic Design with emphasis in typography at Anhembi Morumbi University in São Paulo (2015). As a graphic designer, he worked at FAMA Museu (Fábrica de Arte Marcos Amaro), in Itu, and since 2019 he works at Kogan Amaro Gallery. His contact with painting begins in 2013, through incursions with graffiti in the city of São Paulo. Then, he begins to be guided in the light of the influences given by the relations between gestural painting and oriental calligraphy, or more precisely by the history of the expressionist abstract movement led by the New York School in the immediate post-war period. In the scope of his work, the convergence of cultures between East and West through the “path of writing” (translation for Shodô in Japanese) stands out, focusing on the contrast and juxtaposition of expressive gestures and calligraphy, in order to subvert and recode the characters of the alphabet and, thus, propose new aesthetic languages of communication.

In 2020, he begins the course Painting: Practice and Reflection, oriented by Paulo Pasta at the Tomie Ohtake Institute, in São Paulo, and the online course In the Studio: Postwar Abstract Painting, coordinated by Corey D’Augustine (MoMA, New York). In 2019, he completes the course Art Histories: Modern and Contemporary Art, taught by Daniel Jablonski at MASP (Museu de Arte de São Paulo). In the same year, he participates in the 21st Exhibition of MAC – PR (Art Museum of Cascavel, Paraná). In 2018, he teaches Urban Art Workshops at the European Institute of Design, in São Paulo. Produces a series of murals in the city and the south of Bahia with the artist Felipe Mei (Philaico) and starts attending the studio of the painter Arnaldo de Melo, with whom he performs works in partnership.

Sophie Vallance

The kindest thing, 2020
Veja todos

Sophie Vallance’s practice as a painter is an intense examination of moving through life, a conversation with herself. Encounters from her everyday are re-imagined on her large square canvases, half reality, half fantasy. Her imagery draws heavily on the use of animals, self portraiture, food and scenes based on real events, with the themes within her practice ranging from humorous to darkly sad. She is currently based in Glasgow but has lived in both Berlin and London, allowing her practice to naturally evolve over time, not tied to a particular geographical place but rather tied to life experiences wherever they occur. Her own voice exists between feminist practices, cathartic art making, processes of confession, folklore and storytelling, and ultimately her work is an expression of self reflection as she grows and changes as a person.
