Conceptual artist, involved with photography, performance and mail-art, Gastão de Magalhães attended in the 70's the Arts course at USP, where he then concentrated his studies in the search for new media for the use of conceptual art.

His work, from then on, are no longer confined to video or photographic documentation, but expands to books, mail-art, as well as other means of circulation of information. Since then, Gastão de Magalhães, participates in several biennials, individual and collective exhibitions, first in Brazil and then in the rest of the world.
