São Fidélis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1976.
Lives and works in São Fidélis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

PIPA 2016 nominee.

Represented by Roberto Alban Galeria and Athena Contemporânea.

By dedicating himself to both the recreation of pre existent works as well as to representations with no fixed references of figures from within the cultural imaginary – Mury’s work, whilst narrow and hugely free, opens up a dialogue around the history of art – Taking control over the entire creative process: from costume and set design up to the camera angle, he obtains a unique place in the contemporary scene among artists who use their own image as the strongest element of creation. It is part of important collections, as Gilberto Chateaubriand and Joaquim Paiva.
