Educated as an architect and film maker, 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 view, questioning the physical constraints of architecture as we know it. His prints and paintings often originate from architecture schemes or models and demonstrate an exciting foray into the nature of perception, optical illusion and uncertainty. 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.
