PIPA 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018 nominee.

Vanderlei Lopes is an artist who works on the boundaries between diverse languages like drawing, photography, sculpture, video, sound, etc. He’s been dedicated to explore questions of the tradition repositioning them from current directions. It deals with ideas of perception and transience, inheritance and fugacity, as in “Cavalo”, exposed in 2016 in the octagon of the Pinacoteca, in São Paulo, an animal printed in bronze, filled with earth until it overflows, fixed between the moment it falls on the ground and the imminence of getting up.
