STATEMENT

 

Interdisciplinary artist and architect Antonio de Campos works across sculpture, photography, mixed-media and painting. Born in Brazil in 1961, Antonio, now based in Frankfurt, Germany, taps into an artistic language that is engaging and experimental. His artworks expand the field of architectural exploration through abstract, unconventional and yet rewarding designs and gestures.

 

Through a process of experimentation and mixed-media exercises, Antonio proposes a different world view, questioning the physical constraints of design as we know it. His prints and paintings often originate as installations, architecture models or sculptures and demonstrate an exciting foray into the nature of perception, optical illusion and architectural uncertainty. The artist frequently uses light-filled rooms to create his photographs. The final results are mix-media works with added ink drawings and hand-painted motifs, which lends itself to a unique exploration of exposure, colour and contrast.
