Daniel Acosta learned to work with wood and other materials at his father’s cabinetmaking studio, constructing toys and model towns out of cardboard. The artist completed high school with a degree in architecture, and was highly influenced by comics, cinema, TV, music, and art. Acosta graduated with a degree in Sculpture from the Federal University of Santa Maria in 1987. Between 1990 and 1993, he attended workshops with José Rezende, Artur Lescher, Ricardo Basbaum, and Milton Machado. Acosta lived in São Paulo between 1994 and 1996, where he pursued an MA in Art at the School of Communications and Arts at the University of São Paulo, with Carmela Gross as an advisor. It was at this time that the artist began to be represented by Casa Triângulo gallery, where he had his first solo show in 1995, followed by subsequent solo shows in 2002, 2008, 2010, and 2014.
