erre erre is a visual artist, graphic designer and editor of the ‘fera miúda ediç ̃es’. His artwork transits among drawings, collages, paintings, engravings, installations and printed matter. He makes use of both authorial productions and appropriations of images and/or elements already in circulation. A practice that is guided by encounters and shocks; by contingencies, confluences and deviations.
