Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, 1982
Lives and works between Lisbon and São Paulo
Adriano Amaral’s work encompasses an examination of the nature of things – the stuff of the world; itʼs substance, value, materiality and mutability. Blurring the boundaries between object and space; composition and dispersion; painting and sculpture, Amaral creates site-specific installations, responding to the spatial and architectural elements of the exhibition space.
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 Witte de With Center (Rotterdam, Netherlands), Vleeshal Zusterstraat (Middelburg, Netherlands), Bielefelder Kunstverein (Germany) and Galeria Jaqueline Martins (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.
