Angelo Venosa is from São Paulo. He attended Escola Brasil in 1973. He moved to Rio de Janeiro in 1974, where he graduated in Industrial Design from ESDI (Escola Superior de Design Industrial). In the 1980s, he attended courses at the Parque Lage School of Visual Arts and in 2007 he defended the master’s thesis “Da Opacidade”, at Escola de Belas Artes da UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro). It emerged in the Brazilian artistic scene in the 1980s and is one of the few artists of the so-called “Generation 80” dedicated to sculpture and not to painting.

Since then he has laid the groundwork for a journey that includes works at the Bienal de São Paulo (1987), Brazilian Art of the 20th Century (1987, Musee d’Art Moderne de La Ville de Paris), Venice Biennale (1993) (2005). In 2012, the Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro (MAM RJ) awarded him an individual exhibition in commemoration of his 30-year career, which went on to the Pinacoteca de São Paulo, Palácio das Artes in Belo Horizonte and Mamam in Recife. In 2013 the second book on his work was published, also published by Editora Cosac Naify.

Today the artist has several public sculptures installed in the country: Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro (Gardens); Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo (Jardim do Ibirapuera); Pinacoteca of São Paulo (Jardim da Luz); Copacabana / Leme beach, in Rio de Janeiro; Santana do Livramento, Rio Grande do Sul, José Ermírio de Moraes Park in Curitiba and Museu do Açude in Rio de Janeiro.
