Rodrigo Garcia Dutra was nominated for PIPA for the first time this year. The São Paulo-based artist works with painting, sculpture, video, as well as other medias. Dutra says that, for him, the Academia de Arte is more a place of exchange than one of training.
The artist talks about his experiences with various medias and his preference for manual work: “I’ve already experienced virtual reality and it is something that has disenchanted me. I think the manual thing, and what has to do with touch, with “get your hands dirty” attitude, and actually get something out of it has more to do with what I seek now.”
