Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, 1982
Lives and works between Lisbon and São Paulo
Adriano Amaral engages in an alchemic artistic process, employing synthetic and organic compounds as well as video, light and sound. The materials and objects in his work form rare combinations that deny a categorical logic or hierarchy and acts to decontextualize architectural spaces with a sensitivity to the viewer’s physical presence.
After finishing his Master’s degree in London’s Royal College of Art in 2014, Adriano took an art residency in De Atelier, Amsterdam in 2016 and was granted the Mondrian Fonds Work Contribution Proven Talent in 2017.
His recent exhibitions include solo projects at Vleeshal Zusterstraat, Netherlands, Bielefelder Kunstverein, Germany, and Galeria Jaqueline Martins in São Paulo, Brazil. Group shows include projects in Sixty Eight Art Institute, Copenhagen, Modern Art Museum, Moscow and Beelden Aan Zee, The Hague - Netherlands.
Adriano Amaral is supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
