Lives and works in Amsterdam
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.
Limeira, SP, 1978
Lives and works in Berlin
Fernanda Figueiredo studied Architecture and Urbanism at Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie and Visual Arts at Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo. After completing her bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts she worked actively in a collaborative duo in São Paulo. Drawing and painting are the media that best reflect her artistic production. Even though she had produced intensively using several different supports, she always maintained them in dialog with these two techniques. In 2015, when she moved to Berlin, she started pursuing her solo career. Within that time, she had grown a deep interest in Latin American post/colonial theories, tropical exoticism and the role of painting in these narratives. Since 2005 she has exhibited in institutions such as Museu de Arte Moderna in Rio de Janeiro, the Museu de Arte Moderna da Bahia in Salvador, Galerie im Körnerpark and Kunstquartier Bethanien in Berlin. Since then she received various grants, among then the Programa Rede Nacional Funarte Artes Visuais and the Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt Stipendium funded by the Berliner Senat and the Europäischen Sozialfonds (ESF). In 2019, she is one of the nominated artists for the 5. André Evard-Preises from the Kunsthalle Messmer in Germany. Her work is represented in the collection of the Museu de Arte Moderna in Rio de Janeiro.
