About the artist

The common thread running through Moscheta’s work is a great fascination for nature, together with his willingness to travel and experience the landscape. This experience of travelling and living in difficult environments stimulated his interest in depicting the memory of a place in his works, developing a classification procedure like that of an archaeologist questioning the boundaries of territory, geography and physics through art.

Since the start of his artistic career in 2000 he has worked with installation, drawing and photographs arising out of journeys to distant places, where he assembles objects from nature and reproduces them through drawing and photography.

In his curriculum, attention to the solo shows “1.000 km, 10.000 years” (2013) at Galeria Leme and the site-specific “Contra.Céu” (2010) at Morumbi’s Chapel. Comissioned by the 8th Biennial of Mercosul (2011), he has made his research along the extension of the Brazilian/Uruguayan border. Also in 2011, participated in artistic residency onboard a tall ship at Spitsbergen, North Pole. This experience resulted in the solo show “NORTE” (2012), made at Paço Imperial, RIo de Janeiro. In 2013 he participates in the collective show “THE MAGNECTIC NORTH”, at the Louisiana Musem of Modern Art in Copenhagen.

In 2012 he was awarded with the I Investidor Profissional Art Prize ( PIPA Prize) in Popular Vote category, at MAM Rio. In 2009 was awarded in the Bienalle de Gravure de Liège and made artistic residence at Vila Nova de Cerveira for the Biennial of Portugal, and participated also on the 4th edition of Rumos ItaúCultural. In 2013, takes part in the book “Vitamin D2″, Phaidon, an antology of contemporary drawing.

His works are in the collections Gilberto Chateaubriand, MAM-Rio, Lhoist Collection – Brussels, RNA Foundation in Moscow, The Deutsche Bank, Banco Espírito Santo, MAM Bahia, MAC Goiânia, MAM São Paulo, ItaúCultural, Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo and MAMAC Liège.
