(this page was last updated in July 2016)

Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1979.
Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.

Represented by Galeria Leme

PIPA 2014 Nominee.

Alexandre Brandão builds images from the combination of the use of drawing – in its expanded concept, as apropriation of original forms of objects – and unveiled mechanisms that alter its own configuration. Exploring strategies that jumble together processes from nature and culture, Brandão has produced in recent years, drawings, animations and sculptures with light effects and (an-)organic materials such as water and stone, ink and charcoal.

Alexandre Brandão has shown his work in festivals and exhibitions in Brazil and internationally including Cologne KunstFilm Biennale, in Germany in 2005, 17th and 18th Contemporary Art Festival Sesc Videobrazil in São Paulo in 2011 and 2013 and Efeito sem Causa in São Paulo in 2013.
In 2010 the artist was awarded during the 5th Inter-American Biennial of Video Art (Washington DC, USA). In 2014 Brandão won a residency programme at Residency Unlimited NY, through the scholarship ‘Bolsa de Residência Artística ICCo / SP-Arte’.
