Arthur Scovino | PIPA 2015 confirmed participating artist

Arthur Scovino was a PIPA Prize nominee for the first time on last year’s edition. He was selected once more by PIPA 2015 Nominating Committee, signed the Term of Participation and confirmed his participation on the prize’s sixth edition.

In 2014, we interviewed Scovino, who talked about how moving from Rio de Janeiro to Salvador, Bahia, took part in his personal project of becoming a Bahia native. He sees this experience as a “real life” art residency. In this same interview, the artist mentions his relationship with vinyl and Instagram, and their correlation.
