PIPA 2017 and 2020 nominee. 

Alexandre Canonino has a degree in Architecture and Urbanism by the College of Fine Arts of São Paulo, in 1999. His practice is strongly influenced by the logic and aesthetics of architectural designs and geometric abstractions. His works are born from the interest in specific materials and the exploration of their plastic possibilities results in a series of works in which the use of this material is repeated. The chosen materials are industrialized and easily available. Formally, his works tend to have a simple resolution and an economy of gestures, and the process that structures them is evident.
