Guerreiro do Divino Amor holds a Master’s degree in Architecture. His research explores the Superfictions, hidden forces that interfere in the construction of territory and of the collective imaginary. He creates a universe of science fiction from fragments of reality, that results in films, publications and installations.
The artist has participated in the Gran bienal tropical de Porto Rico, in the Biennale of Moving Images of Geneva, in which he was the finalist of the “Generations” prize, in Arte Pará 2018 and in exhibitions at Fundação Iberê Camargo (Porto Alegre, Brazil), Casa França-Brasil (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), MAR (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), Centro de Arte contemporânea de Vilnius (Lithuania), among others. In 2018, he held the solo show “Superfictions” at Paço das Artes (MIS-SP, Brazil). He was an artist in residency at Pivô-Pesquisa (São Paulo, Brazil), at CAL (Brasília, Brazil) and won the Bolsa Pampulha 2019. His films were screened in several national and international festivals (Mexico, Singapore, Japan, Philippines, Spain etc) and the film “De repente Bárbara” won Best Short Film on the TrangenderFilm Festival 2015 (Kiel, Germany).
Guerreiro is also a member of the group and carnival academy Bunytos de Corpo, which satirizes the cult of the body through collective performances in the streets of Rio de Janeiro.
