Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil, 1982.
Lives and works between Amsterdam, Holland and São Paulo, Brazil.
PIPA 2015 nominee.
Adriano Amaral received his MA in Sculpture from The Royal College of Art, London, UK (2012-2014) and is currently an artist in residence at De Ateliers, Amsterdam (2014-2016). In 2014 he received the Kenneth Armitage Young Sculptor Prize. Amaralʼs work encompasses an examination of the nature of things – the stuff of the world; itʼs substance, value, materiality and mutability. Blurring the boundaries between object and space; composition and dispersion; painting and sculpture, Amaral creates site-specific installations, responding to the spatial and architectural elements of the exhibition space or gallery.
