BIOGRAPHY

André Ricardo

1985, São Paulo | SP - Brazil

André Ricardo was born in 1985 in the city of São Paulo where he currently lives and works. Graduated in Visual Arts at the School of Communications and Arts at the University of São Paulo, he held several individual and collective exhibitions in Brazil, Portugal and Spain. For the modernist tradition and contemporary practices, he works against the most current trends in contemporary art. But this support translates for him into an artistic creation of his own time, in which he seeks to operate a synthesis of the elements of the urban space through color.

His motives emerge from aspects and objects seen on routes around the city: between 2011 and 2012, with his series of buckets and excavators he tried to perceive them as words for the construction of a new painting. It was mainly its shape and color that suggested compositions to him. From them he extracted - as we noticed with his most recent work - the grammar of his works until they resulted in fully abstract forms.
