In this bilingual edition, the publication includes an interview given by Andrade in which he discusses his trajectory in painting since the 1980s and his relationship with schools and movements in the history of art that dialogue with his works.

Biography of the artist

Rodrigo Andrade, born in 1962, began his training at Sergio Fingermann's atelier in São Paulo, studied at the Studio of Graphic Arts in Glasgow and at the École de Beaux Arts in Paris. In the 1980s he joined the collective Casa 7 with Nuno Ramos and Carlito Carvalhosa, among others.

He participated in the exhibition Grande São Paulo at the 18th Biennial of São Paulo, and also at the 29th Bienal in 2010, where he presented for the first time the series Night Matter. He held several solo and group exhibitions in Brazil and abroad.

With influences that go from the universe of comic books to classic art, the artist is one of the consecrated names of Brazilian contemporary art, and the unfolding of his painting extrapolates the space of the screen, producing a singular language, illusion and matter.
