PIPA 2015 Nominee.

Magalhães develops his work in painting. His pieces emerge from metaphors created from: drives, psychic conditions and substrates from a personal imaginary condition, to reach a state of Image / Body. The results are obtained by means of devices that are born of a modus operandi, starting from a photographic act and which materializes itself into painting. The artist present meticulously planned scenes, capable of blurring the limits of perception, configured as distortions of reality and disturbing contours. Thus, his work brings together a series of operations in which his painting reaches across the boundaries of the Ego to find the Other, the Self.
