André Mendes holds a degree in Graphic Design from PUC-PR. His research and production are focused on drawing, painting, sculpture, installations, and spatial interventions. He is interested in the materiality of color and its behavior as a fluid, and his work overflows and also flirts with other surfaces of the world around him – sculptural and architectural. André embraces the imprecision that permeates practices and promotes encounters and experiences between techniques and languages. Among his main solo exhibitions are “LADOS LADOS,” 2022, at the Oscar Niemeyer Museum, Curitiba, Brazil, where he not only exhibited but also conducted more than 10 workshops open to the public and guided tours. “Ainda não,” 2019, Matèria Gallery, Rome, Italy, “ESTADO,” 2018, Zilda Fraletti Gallery, Curitiba, Brazil, “Antes do Fim,” 2018, Cloitre des Billettes, Paris, France, Solo Project Art Basel 2016, Ricardo Fernandes Gallery, Basel, Switzerland.

André Mendes is a specialist in murals and works on projects as an artist, muralist, and art educator.
