Interview with Pipa 2016 Nominated Artists | Meet Pedro França

In every edition of the Prize, the participating artists are invited to record exclusive video interviews, an opportunity for artists to voice their ideas, talk about their creative processes and careers. The video interviews are produced by Matrioska Filmes. This week, we released an interview with Pedro França, who is a Pipa nominee for the first time.

Pedro França

Pedro França taught History of Art at the School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage between 2006 and 2011. The artist that, until recently, opted for black and white in his works, talks about his artwork that consists in super colorful zombie-like clothes and explains his difficulty in working with colors: “Color has always been a problem for me, a fear, something I could not face. I started the year by doing a lot of observation watercolors. The watercolor put me directly in touch with color, and with a more liquid, more shapeless, more uncontrolled materiality of a stain.”
