Evandro Angerami
Sao Paulo, SP – 1979
Lives and works in Sao Paulo

 At 38 years old, Angerami travels great distances, each time further from his hometown of Sao Paulo, to study the history and the practice of the classics – the Byzantines and their monasteries, meticulously hand painted in the thirteenth century. The more recent an Angerami production is, the more it is found within the ancient, finding parallels with traditional painting techniques and contemporary conceptual approaches.

Strongly connected to his beliefs about artistic creation, the 23K gold leaf painting and its close relationship with minerals and nature reinforces the importance Angerami gives to each brushstroke in his works – be they done on canvas, wood, or wall, the base that has gained increasing importance in his urban work.

Angerami’s numerous artistic residencies and cultural immersions meet his most personal characteristic of metamorphosing with the universe in which he is immersed. His expeditions for outdoor painting, for example, generated interest within the indigenous communities where he was, and they ended up participating in his workshops.

Angerami´s production is divided in two ways: studio and open air. In one, we find studio created versions of his memory landscapes, where the artist meets his references and allows himself to create imaginary universes. In the other, it absorbs the layers reached by the eyes, interprets the light change in external environments as time passes by and experiences for hours each space and its lives.
