PIPA 2017 nominee. 

Ulysses Bôscolo studied Fine Arts at Armando Álvares Penteado Foundation, graduating in 1999 and going on to a Visual Arts Masters Programme through the São Paulo University, under supervision of Prof. Dr. Luiz Claudio Mubarac (from 2010 to 2012). The artist works with etching, woodcutting, painting, objects and book illustrations. His artworks deal with materials often found on the street, in dumpsters and demolition sites, antique dealers and second hand bookshops, philately street markets among other living, historical elements of the city of São Paulo. Sculpture, in his woodcuts, is an element often linked to small scale. Sculpture in his prints are no bigger than three centimetres. Painting, in a very unique way, inhabits this environment and is also associated with small formats, but is distributed in numerous ways, transforming in great polyptychs. Ulysses favourite themes are birds, houses, trees and self-portraits.
